I am sharing a Q-tip craft that kind of randomly happened the other day. My Q-tip flowers are one of the most popular posts over on Pinterest. It’s been pinned over 36,000 times! So, when I saw some styrofoam letters on clearance at Joann’s, I had the idea to do a Q-tip it up! These cotton swab crafts are perfect for kids, they love pushing the swabs into the styrofoam.
This Q-Tip letter craft is easy for kids of all ages to make. It’s a great sensory activity and makes a cute decoration for a kid’s bedroom. This Q-tip letter is so fun and unexpected!
Q-Tip Letter Craft
Q-tip crafts are some of my favorites because they are so inexpensive to create and you probably already have cotton swabs lying around at home. These q-tip letters are so fun for kids because they will love the sound and feel of pushing the cotton swabs into the styrofoam letter. The letters look so fabulous when they are all finished and dried. Kids can customize this craft to match the decor in their room, making this q-tip craft a winner!
Materials Needed For Q-Tip Letter Craft
Here’s how I did it! This is what you will need:
You will need:
Fabric Mod Podge
Instructions For How To Make A Q-Tip Letter
My original plan was to have Q-tips on the sides as well, but I could not push them in far enough because the ones of the top were blocking them. So, I had to go with a different plan. Just put them in the top.
3. Mix up some food coloring and water in a shallow dish.
You want the color to be quite saturated. I have tried different colors and I have found that an aqua/teal works best. But you can definitely try whatever you want!
5. Let them dry. It takes about 24 hours for the Q-tips to fully dry!
6. Cut fabric and use Mod Podge to glue it around the edges.
I don’t have step by step photos for this part, but I just used some fabric Mod Podge and added a strip of fabric around the edge. You could probably also do this with craft paper.
