These Standing Foam People are a fun way to use the craft foam sheets.  You can use a variety of materials to decorate them, we used foam stickers and yarn to make it an easier craft but you could get really creative with this craft.  These are super cute if you decorate them to look like yourself or a person you know and give as a gift.  Here's another personalized gift you can make for someone special, like mom, teacher, or grandparents.


Supplies to make a Standing Foam People:

  • Craft Foam Sheets
  • Craft wood balls for heads 
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Yarn
  • Googly Eyes
  • Decorations such as ribbon, rope, beads… 
  • Low-Temp Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Permanent Marker
  • Foam People Template

Directions To Make a Standing Foam Person:

  • Use templates to cut your foam
  • Decorate the "body" with foam stickers. 
  • To make the body standing, form a cone shape out of the body with the top slightly open to leave a flat place to glue the head, use a hot glue gun to glue the seam, you can use tape to hold it closed while the glue dries

  • Glue the wooden head on top
  • Glue the arms to form a long tube, fold the tube in half to find the middle and glue the middle of the tube to the middle of the back of the figure.
  • Cut off the two ends of a popsicle stick and stick into the ends of the arms to make the hands

  • Note:  Another way to make the arms is cut the tube you make for the arms in half, then slit each side of the body and glue the arms in the holes.


  • Decorate the head with yarn, googly eyes, and draw on the mouth.
