This autumn leaf placemat is a gorgeous way to brighten up your dining room. Inspired by real fall leaves, this a simple DIY project that adults and even kids will surely enjoy.
What you need:
- Craft paint
- Fabric (preferable green or brown)
- Paper and pen
- Sponge or paint brush
Step 1. Grab a piece of paper and marker. Fold it in half and draw the template for the leaf. Choose any leaf that you want. You may check online or print a picture as a guide.
Step 2. Once done, cut it out.
Step 3. Lay the cut-out paper leaf on the fabric and trace the shape with a marker. Then, carefully cut along the outline of the leaf.
Step 4. You may leave your leaf as it is or you can add a more personal touch by painting it. If you want the leaf to look like it is changing color, mix red and yellow craft paint. Dab it on the placemat using a sponge. Use a paintbrush to add more details. If you are satisfied with the look, let it dry.
And you are done! These fall leaf placemats are a great accent for your dinner table.
