I c About a week ago I was walking through one of my favorite -But overly priced home decor stores and saw these leaf place mats that I fell in love with, However $6 - $8 per piece was a no go, especially if you needed quite a few of them for a larger family event such as Thanksgiving dinner. Ours were made for about $1.50 per piece and that included 1 bag of fall maple leafs from dollar tree and a piece of felt that was 2 for $1 at a craft store. You don't NEED the felt but I thought it gave a nicer and more expensive feel then using something like card stock or cardboard. I can't wait to see how these look on our family table, with all the traditional thanksgiving offerings around it. I honestly think ours looks better then the ones from the other store. ;)
For each placemat you will need:
⦁ 1 Piece Orange felt
⦁ Silk/Fabric leaves
⦁ Hot glue/e6000
Measure a dinner plate against the felt to use as a base & cut into a circle
start on the outer edge and layer leaves in a spiral pattern overlapping the leaves slightly as you go.
Allow glue to dry and enjoy your new decor!

Happy Friday Family..Well if you are like a lot of people I know you are scrambling around trying to find that last minute Mother's Day gift or trying to think of something creative for the kids to do for Grandma..Well here it is...Reasonably priced, a lot of items you probably have around your house and the rest you can get at your local Dollar Store .You can even buy enough to make more then one jar! Make tomorrow night project night for the kiddies. They can even come up with some of their own ideas. I went to Clker.com to find a graphic which I printed out and made a mason jar topper with.
Then I made a heart tag using the same graphic. Don't fret if you don't have a print program, you can either make your own or a piece of scrapbook paper will work out fine :) I typed out what each item means and taped it to the back of the tag. So have fun! Here's a list of what I used:
Almond Joy bar- For all the joy you have given me
Peppermints- Because your worth a mint
Tea Bags- For when you need to relax
Seeds: For helping me grow to who I am today
Candle: For being my guiding light
Cotton Balls- To help soften rough times
Starburst: To give you a burst of energy when you need it
Eraser: For life's little mistakes
Paper clips: To keep it all together
Puzzle Piece: Because your the piece that holds our family together
Safety Pins: For life's little emergencies
