Black Starry Foam Placemat

We love making and using foam placemats. It is a great inexpensive project that kids really love. The finished placemats are really attractive and practical for summer dining. This dramatic placemat is composed of a striking black background and multicolored stars for a design that will make your littlest diners feel extra special. We used a combination of regular and glow in the dark stars for our placemats for nighttime dining, but you can use any precut stars, or cut out your own. Make sure to not be skimpy with the stars. They should be close together to provide a surface large enough to support plates, bowls, and glasses without tipping. The supplies below are what you will need to make one placemat, just multiply as needed to make additional placemats.

1 12 inch by 18 inch sheet of thin black foam

60-80 assorted sized and colored stars

Glue

Choose the most unblemished side of the foam to be the top of your placemat. Arrange the stars on the placemat, balancing color and size evenly. Once you have a layout that you like, glue on the stars. Let the glue dry thoroughly before using.
