- Time:an hour + dry time
1Spread a layer of shaving cream in the pan. The thickness of the shaving cream acts as a stabilizer for the paint, keeping the designs in place.
2Add a few drops of fall-colored acrylic paint on top of foam, and pull through with a craft stick. Make swirls across, then up and down until it is pleasing to your eye.
3Cut the leaf shapes from the construction paper and press them into the foam. Pull the leaf shapes up and scrap off the foam with a craft stick. Let the shapes dry.
4Place the shapes between two layers of wax paper. Add a towel over this and have an adult iron the two sheets together.
5To make the placemat, trim the wax paper to a rectangle shape. Cover the edges with the duct tape.
