    That hot knife is no longer available as of today. Perhaps I’ll try Canada.
    Also can’t you use the styrofoam found in packaging instead of buying ‘crafter’s styrofoam’?

  5. Linda Lance on February 25, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    That looks so beautiful. What a great job.

  6. Rick Parma on February 25, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    I love the font for the word NINES… what is it?

  7. Renee Tenner on February 25, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I viewed a previous movie where you created shelving units for storage for the design room. Did they hold up?

  8. Simple Dot Ashley on February 25, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    This looks really nice!

  9. Maggie Baxter on February 25, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Love this complete idea Natalee and the gold on the navy blue stripe is stunning. If I were to do this (we have a Cape Cod style home and my craft room has the slanted ceiling so probably I can’t) I would use my hashtag #kindnessmatters. You’ve got my brain working now to think of a space where I actually could do this though! Thanks for sharing this fabulous idea and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🤗

  10. DMZ on February 25, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Unfortunately the Cricut machine and everything else you need are very expensive 💔

  11. Pj2222 Mcneely on February 25, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    O M G you are so clever. Nobody would ever guess what that is made from. Looks like a million bucks!!
    I’ve been seeing a store that other you tubers use. It is not in my area-Ohio. I know there are a couple in Florida. It’s
    Cb2. Would love to see some knock offs from them. tfs💞

  12. Lisbeth Bowlin on February 25, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    You should use foam insulation from the hardware store – it has a smooth finish – just paint and you are done.

  13. Michele Pafundi on February 25, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    What is the name of the episode that u used the hot knife before this one? I just got the foam factory hot tools and looking for ideas ..

  14. lynnettelg on February 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Do you think some of the pink spackle you’ve used before would’ve worked to smooth the tops of the letters?

  15. Jamie Rossi on February 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    So very high end. Love it

  16. Nita Diece on February 25, 2022 at 11:24 pm


  17. Jessica Hites on February 25, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Totally floored that your sign is made out of styrofoam and poster boards!!

  18. Melody Overbay on February 25, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    I know I’m late to the game, but I just got my Cricut Maker 3, and saw the sign you made and it’s absolutely amazing. I love your channel! I do have a question about the foam you used, what thickness did you use? thank you in advanced. Also loved the lanterns you made for outside by your pool, will be making those also, when we start working on our backyard. I love so many of your projects I get over whelmed on what to do next.

    I love it, I can’t wait to try it for my new office in the basement

  24. Tibbytx on February 25, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Couldn’t you have just put gold glitter on it?

  25. Malisa Mendoza on February 25, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Wow! I love 💕 the way your sign turned out! I watched the girls can use power tools video first & I thought 💭 oh wow you bought a sign for your craft room I thought to myself I wonder how much your new sign cost you and where did you purchase it from? That’s how great it turned out! I am so impressed with it and your creativity! I really enjoyed the tutorial! Great job! ♥️

  26. Jena Merryman on February 25, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Your sign looks so professional! Nice job!

  27. Christian Matthews on February 25, 2022 at 11:34 pm

  28. Diane Beland on February 25, 2022 at 11:36 pm

  29. Grand Design on February 25, 2022 at 11:37 pm

  30. Jessica K on February 25, 2022 at 11:38 pm

  33. sandi conley on February 25, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    She shows how to do things if you don’t have every machine like cricut like me. I’m not rich enough to have all the things I’d love to have.

  34. Lauren Rishel on February 25, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Hi Natalie- what brand of spray glue did you use? Did you stick you rhinestone ribbon with the same glue? Also what font did you use for your lettering?

  35. yolanda tyson on February 25, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Simply Beautiful ❤

  36. M.Gil on February 25, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    This great I’m making a sweet 16 candelabra and it’s all foam. Would be cool to see you make one. Those things can cost about $200.

  37. Nikkol Archer on February 25, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    If you don’t mind what size did you print out the name?

  38. Roshawn Powers on February 25, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Okay say if I didnt want to do the ribbon but. Paint it black wouldnt it look UN finished on the sides what else would u recommend I love this I was bout to buy auntie stay 3d letter which I love her but this is cheap and not monthly

  39. Dawn B on February 25, 2022 at 11:48 pm

  40. Ruth PlanningPlace on February 25, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Great idea, thank you for sharing!

  41. Chloe Boot on February 25, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    The letters look lumpy. Why is that?

  42. MK Hooks on February 25, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    Love this, Natalee! Thanks so much for sharing 😊 Definitely going to do this in my craft room!

  43. Tresh R Pri on February 25, 2022 at 11:53 pm

  44. Laticia Cull on February 25, 2022 at 11:54 pm

  49. Stacey Corteville on February 26, 2022 at 12:00 am

    Hey NataLee! I hope you get this soon. I just got the new blaze pen my husband is on his way to get a heat gun. I just want to know if it’s OK to draw out the picture or letters you want and let it sit there before you use the heat gun. It comes with no directions.

  50. LadySilke on February 26, 2022 at 12:00 am

    That is AMAZING!!!! Glad I happened across your channel – NEW SUBSCRIBER!!!
