Cloud Letters & Numbers Supplies

Check out my short video tutorial to learn how easy it is to make your own giant cloud numbers. Here is a brief summary of the steps:

  1. Use my templates (at the bottom of this post) to trace the numbers onto the foam core board. Each square on the template is a one inch square on the foam core board.
  2. Cut the numbers out using the craft knife. I put a self healing mat under the foam core board to protect my work surface.
  3. Cut pieces of board that are 5 inches wide. Use those to build the sides of the numbers so they can stand.
  4. Tape the string lights in place.
  5. Fill the numbers with Poly-Fil Premium Fiber Fill.
  6. Glue Poly-Fil fiber fill to cover the edges of the numbers.
  7.  Display and enjoy your handmade project that looks professional!

These giant cloud numbers are incredibly light, so you can move them easily. If you are concerned about them tipping over in an outdoor setting, fill plastic bags with Poly Pellets Weighted Stuffing Beads and tape the bags to the base of the numbers. This added weight will keep the marquee numbers from flipping too easily.
