  1. Print your letter templates to size.  Cut out the templates.  Pin the templates to the foam—Trace around the templates with the marker. 
  2. Use the saw to cut out the letters. While cutting, be sure to keep the saw blade at a 90-degree angle to the surface of the foam. This will ensure that the sides of the letters stay straight and square. 
  3. Use scrap pieces of foam as sanding blocks to sand away any uneven areas. Lightly sand around the outside edges of the letters to round them slightly. Removing the sharp corner will help make bumps and dings less noticeable. 
  4. Apply a coat of drywall spackling to the surface of the letters to help fill the cells of the foam for painting. Just one coat will make the surface slightly rough. Allow it to dry completely. Use the fine-grit sanding block to remove any uneven spackling marks. Wipe away dust from the surface. 
  5. Paint the letters with the roller.  Two coats may be needed.  Allow the first coat to dry before adding the next coat.
