My daughter found this leaf craft on her computer and I decided to feature it on today's edition of Mom Minutes. It's a leaf placement! Not only is it clever and creative, but also useful!
Autumn Leaf Placemat Craft by Sherri Osborn
Use real leaves and clear contact paper to make this easy placemat.
Clear Contact Paper
Go for a walk and collect a wide variety of leaves - as many different colors and shapes as you can find.
Cut 2 pieces of clear contact paper about 2-feet long. Remove the backing from one piece. Stick the leaves randomly onto the sticky side of the contact paper. Once you are satisfied with the design, peel the backing off the second piece of contact paper and cover the leaves with it to seal them in between the contact paper sheets.
Trim around the edges; use pinking shears or other fancy edged scissors if you like!
Hope you all have a wonderful day today!
Too late to find leaves here that aren't dried up and brown. We'd have to do the collecting part by early Oct. But it's a great idea and I'll file it away for next fall!ReplyDelete
