6mm MDF decorate it yourself shape/s. We have a large selection of unpainted shapes you can customise yourself either by painting or glueing things to.

Decorating 

When painting add a coat of white primer first. You can buy wood primer or you can mix PVA with ordinary paint, either acrylic or household emulsion. This stops the top coat of paint from sinking into the MDF and looking patchy, it also helps keep your chosen colour/s vibrant. 

When gluing glitter (or sand or anything you can "sprinkle") to the blanks either cover in PVA, wood glue or varnish then sprinkle it on. We found the best technique is to firstly paint the item the same colour you would like the glitter (or other) finish, then when dry using an oil based wood varnish, apply generously then cover in glitter. The finer the glitter the better the finish. You shouldn't need to apply varnish again, but it might be necessary if you find the glitter is falling off. 

When glueing 3D things like flowers or pompoms a hot glue gun is perfect. For flowers it is best to apply glue to the petals not the plastic part holding the flower head together. 

Other ideas you can decorate your prop with include decoupage, adding things using wire, wrapping wool, string or ribbon around, spray painting, drilling holes through to wood to add items and such. Using a staple gun isn't advised on this thickness of wood unless you find a way of making the staples safe if they go all the way through the wood - in the past we have used a glue gun to cover the staples sticking out.
