Celebrate a milestone birthday with this glittery, red-and-white sweet 16 Styrofoam wall art display. Make in four easy steps!


  • STYROFOAM* Brand Foam:
  • Alphabet Soup Letters, 6" x 1" (FloraCraft®): S, W, E (two), T
  • Alphabet Soup Numbers, 6" x 1" (FloraCraft): 1, 6
  • Smooth Finish™ Paint for STYROFOAM: red; white
  • Double-sided or hook-and-loop tape, or small nails
  • Iridescent glitter
  • Pencil
  • Medium flat paintbrush
  • Disposable palette
  • Water basin
  • Ruler
  • Paper towels


  1. Place foam letters in order on work surface. Use pencil to draw two wavy lines across all letters, about 2" apart (indicated by pink area in photo).
  2. Follow manufacturer's instructions to apply two coats Smooth Finish Paint in white to foam numbers. While second coat is still wet, sprinkle numbers with glitter. Let dry.
  3.  In same way as numbers, paint and sprinkle glitter on top third of each foam letter. Mix small amount red into larger amount of white to make light pink; paint center area of each letter. Mix more red into remaining light pink to make dark pink; paint bottom third of each letter. Let dry completely.
  4. Attach foam shapes to non-porous surface using double-sided or hook-and-loop tape; for other surfaces, press shapes onto small nails to hang.
