what to do with leftover foam

Postby jss06 » Thu Oct 01, 2015 6:52 pm

Every year we put on a decent Halloween display and try to add something new. This year it's a new tombstone. Just one possible use for leftover foam.... Construction is about half finished then it has to be painted and stressed.

Print it on the inkjet, attach it to the foam, then use a Dremel with router attachment to carve out the letters.

Outstanding! I'm going to use this. Don't know where or when, but I'm going to use it.
