Ways to Use Leftover Shredded Foam

shredded foamIf you’ve purchased a bag of shredded foam from for a DIY project such as a foam sack or a kids crash pad, you might have a few pounds of foam left over. Instead of sticking it in the back of a closet or throwing it away, here are a few fun ideas for using up all that leftover foam.

Make or repair stuffed animals for kids

Forget the expensive “build-a-bear” places at the mall. With leftover shredded foam and some other materials from the craft store, you and your kids can make your own stuffed animals right at home. This is a great activity for birthday parties and sleepovers, too! Or you can use the shredded foam to repair a much loved stuffed animal that has seen better days.

Make foam throw pillows and bolsters

Shredded foam works well in throw pillows and bolsters for the living room, guest rooms, and bedrooms. Pillows and bolsters are easy to make, and don’t even require any sewing skills. Simply stuff the foam into a liner in the desired pillow shape and style, and then put a decorative pillow cover over the liner. Making your own throws and bolsters gives you a lot of flexibility with designs and patterns, and lets you match your existing decor or go in a different direction whenever you wish.

Make a comfy foam pet bed

Dogs and cats can be tough on their beds, but buying new ones ready made from the pet store is even tougher on your wallet. If you’d rather skip the pricey pet products and make your own dog or cat bed instead, just gather up your leftover shredded foam into a zippered cover. Depending on the size of your pet, you can even re-purpose an old pillow case as a cover. This type of pet bed is perfect for dogs and cats that like to burrow in when sleeping, so give it a try!
