Upcycled Chic Foam Board Lightning Bolt

2 Materials
45 Minutes

We made this cheap recycled wall decor lightning bolt from a piece of foam that came packed in some furniture, but the foam board sheets you buy at the store works just as well! FULL POST HERE

SUPPLIES (Links to items on our actual website post) ⚫40mm round gold sequins (we purchased ours at Hobby Lobby for 1.99 a pack) ⚫Foam board, 22″ x 28″ or any size you want your lightning bolt. ⚫ Hot Glue Gun ⚫X-acto Knife or utility knife

We used foam board that came from a small furniture item that was shipped to us. But you can also grab a foam sheet from any Walmart, Dollar Store or Craft Store.


Cut out your lighning bolt shape. We have a FREE PRINTABLE PATTERN on our site!

Begin covering it with the sequines, overlapping eaching one slightly to cover the foam board.

Suggested materials:
  • Packing foam sheet
  • Round sequins
