Mattress foam is a versatile material that can be used for a variety of different DIY projects. In this blog post, we’ll share seven fun ideas for ways you can use mattress foam to create something new and exciting!
Make a custom body pillow. If you’re looking for a unique way to spruce up your bedroom, why not make your own body pillow? All you need is a piece of mattress foam and some fabric of your choice. Simply cut the foam to the desired size, wrap it in fabric, and voila!
Create a pet bed. Have a cat or dog that could use a cozy spot to sleep? Mattress foam makes an ideal pet bed because it’s soft and comfortable. Plus, you can easily make it fit any size pet by cutting the foam to the desired shape and size. Simply cover the foam in fabric and voila! Your pet will love snuggling up in their new bed.
Make your own floor mats. Sick of stepping on cold, hard floors? Soften things up with some DIY floor mats made from mattress foam. All you need is a piece of foam and some fabric or non-slip material for the bottom. Cut the foam to size, cover it in fabric, and then add a non-slip bottom—et voilà! You’ve got yourself some comfy floor mats that are sure to make any space feel cozier.
Soundproof your walls. If you live in an apartment or condo, chances are you’ve had to deal with noisy neighbors at one point or another. Combat thin walls by using mattress foam to soundproof them! Just cut the foam to size and attach it to the wall using adhesive strips or Velcro strips.
Craft a memory board. A memory board is a great way to display photos, mementos, and other memories in your home. All you need is one big piece of mattress foam, some batting, and fabric. Wrap the batting around the piece of foam, staple or glue it in place, then wrap the whole thing in fabric. Use pushpins or thumbtacks to secure memories onto the memory board.
If you don’t happen to have any mattress foam lying around, then The Foam Factory is a great place to source some.
