How to Create a Pom-Pom Number Birthday Decoration

Pom-Pom Number
A great and inexpensive birthday decoration to create.
The instructions call for using foam board and believe it or not coffee filers.  I like the coffee filters that you can buy at the dollar store (Dollartree has foam boards).
The project is spray painted but there are other ways to color coffee filters such as using food coloring for a safer way to color.
