Hi, my DD has to do an art project where she has to make a 3d letter (in this case the letter "M" and then pin things around/stick things around it starting with that letter. She has said they can use anything and has a few ideas already, including foam/cardboard. Does anyone have any other ideas please? It has to be durable/able to "stand up". Thanks! If not, I think the cardboard/foam ideas is fine, it's just that she's not sure if there's a better way? smile

mod roc or clay?

Sew a M shaped mini cushion and stuff it? That's what my dd would do - but she is very fabric oriented.

Bent wire?

A bent wire armature covered in pva soaked tissue paper?

If you go to a real craft shop, you should be able to buy a polystyrene shape. You can then stick all sorts of pins and other decorations onto it.

Wicked, what a fabulous suggestion - my DD was thinking along the lines of foam/polystyrene but using pins to stick things onto it is a great suggestion. Thanks so much - will go and suggest it - she's already thought of lots of things to put on it. THANK YOU.

Oasis from a florist would be cheaper!
