Hold the insulation flat and cut pieces 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch wide along its entire length. Avoid removing the plastic backing along the adhesive edges of the foam.
Peel off the plastic backing from both edges of a link and press the ends together. Loop one end of a second piece of foam through the first foam circle and press the adhesive ends together to make the second link.
Continue adding links until the chain is as long as you want or you run out of foam insulation.
Depending on the width of the links, one piece of insulation will make a chain 6-1/2 feet to 7 feet long. Buy additional pieces of insulation for longer chains.
Drape foam chains around a pumpkin, your front door, or on a party table centerpiece.
