I am having trouble with the spray paint eating the styrofoam. What kind of spray paint did you use?

I painted them after I assembled them. I placed them on newspaper in the garage. I would spray a side, let it dry and then turn them over until all areas were covered.

I used KRYLON crafters spray paint. I just looked at the can and it said on the can, "safe for used with styrofoam".

Had I realized there would be an issue with the paint eating the styrofoam I would have posted this earlier

I love the ornaments and tree topper. I think I will make a tree topper for our tree this year! Thanks for the hint on the type of spray paint..I would not have thought of it.

Was the spray paint a glitter paint?

I originally started with gold. Then on a second trip to JoAnn's I saw they had glitter spray too and both that and made both.

The glitter spray doesn't spray evenly. I had patches where there was a ton of glitter. So, be careful. Then the glitter would stop coming out and only the color. I think I didn't shake the can enough.

I didn't realize I missed this question. I posted on page 1, post # 9 how I made this part. Very easy.

I just started making these, thanks so much for the idea!

I am making two for friends of ours as gifts they love Disney too.

I am using the smooth styrofoam balls (the ones that look like that stuff stereo euipment is packed in), and craft paint put on with a brush, and loose glitter I will put on with glue. Then I got some glitter glue I am going to write their last name with. I hope it works.

I hope that you would post a picture of how these turn out. I'd really like to see them.
