- Styrofoam Meat Trays
Cut shapes and color a picture on the bottom of a styrofoam meat tray. Put them on a cookie sheet and in the oven for a few minutes on about 350 degrees. You will see them curl and shrink; then they are ready to take out.
You can make your shrink art into jewelry by following the directions above. Just punch a hole before putting into oven. Thread onto yarn or colored string. Make necklaces and bracelets.
Make your shrink art into a key chain. Cut out a large oblong or any shape, color with a permanent marker, punch a hole in the top, and shrink in the oven. They make a cute key chain.
