With foam boards, you can as easily make a custom clock at home. Most craft stores sell clock supplies that include a battery pack attached to clock arms. So you simply need to drill a hole through the foam core, place the arms of the clock through the hole and attach the battery pack to the back side and there, you will have a working clock ready! You could even experiment with the look and use numbers, images, photographs or just about anything you like to denote 12 sections showing the time.

4    Display board: 

      Use foam core for making a display and bulletin board in order to keep the board light weight as well as strong at the same time. That’s the beauty of foam core; you can rest assured of the longevity of the project. Putting a frame around the board or covering it with fabric to provide a better finished look will make your piece look even better.  Pushpins will cling right onto your display board to showcase your collection of pictures, postcards and much more. A good thing about it is that you can make this project suit the décor at your home.
