An easy way to make foam falls - Kitty boguls (meebee3)

First i get out all my materials and prepare them.(all my foam comes from the uk store boyes or from craft depot who give discount the more you buy) I cut my foam into strips and pin a strong piece of elastic down to the table stretched out.

I then take strips of different coloured foam and put them together in kind of a stepped effect.
Image
Then you wrap one end of the foam around the elastic and secure with glue or with an elastic band. The shorter sections should be on top which gives a layered effect.
Image
For one strip of elastic i normally use 10 - 15 sections. This pic shows short pieces of foam.
Image
You can repeat this process with longer pieces of foam and rexlace on a seperate elastic to create another layer which can be then worn underneath the shorter one.( excuse my head, she took a tumbe and so is missing a nose)
One layer....
Image
Two layers...
Image
You can also use card punchers to punch out shapes with which to decorate your foam or use small crystals, bows or sequins.
Image
Image
U can also add thin stripes of other colours or patterns using more foam, a marker pen or metallic inks.
Image
Rexlace can be knotted in between the foam strips for extra body or cyberlox / pvc tubing or dreads can also be fastened in between by folding it over the elastic and securing with a rubber band or small cable ties.

This technique can also be used for larger foam and other materials.
