Marbled Leaves

Last year we made glitter leaves (and we may do this again, because it was a fun craft to make and well, we got to use glitter Ha).  

This year, we made marbled leaves.

So Cute!

You will need shaving cream, paint and a squeegee.  Any old shaving cream will do.
I traced and cut leaves onto paper plates, you need sturdy paper (like card stock, but since I didn't have any card stock, I used paper plates).

Spread the shaving cream in a large, wide bowl and add some paint.  We used fall leaf colors, of course (red, orange, yellow, brown and green).

Take the handle of a wooden spoon and swirl the colors together.

Press the leaf into the mixture

Set aside for about 10 minutes or so.

Next, squeegee the shaving cream/paint mixture off the leaf.

Looks absolutely fabulous, doesn't it?
