I am working on ideas for Jaylah's 12 birthday and Jaxson's 5th birthday. One of the ideas I know I want to incorporate this year are giant numbers. Because I haven't done numbers before they aren't as large as I would like them but for the party we are having I think they will do just fine!
I found a great tutorial that helped me make these awesome letters. This post is only part one on how to make the letters. I am going to decorate each later and will post those at a later time.
Step 1: Draw/sketch out the number (or letter) on the foam board -do this twice for the front and the back of the number.
Step 2: Cut it out. I used a X-acto knife.
Step 3: Use the poster board strips (6'' wide strips) and tape them around the side of the number or letter.
Step 4: Place the foam cups about 6'' a part inside the number.
Step 5: Glue the cups in place and then glue the back of the number into place.
Step 6: Now it's time to paint and decorate.
This is only phase one of the numbers for Jaylah and Jaxson's birthday. Check back to see the finished decorated numbers!
