DIY Fallen Leaves Placemat

I'm so happy that fall is finally here!
It really is my favorite time of the year.
 
I bought several sweaters during the spring and summer and I finally get to wear them.
I am so excited!
 
 
 

 
I went to Kohls the other day to look around
and saw this placemat
I loved the look...but it was $9
and I thought for sure, I could make one cheaper at home.
 
 
Fallen Leaf Tablescape
 
Supplies Needed:
Fake Leaves (I found mine at the Dollar Tree)
Placemat (I found this round woven one at Walmart for $2)
Glue Gun


 
I worked around in a circle, placing the leaves here and there.
Using my glue gun as I went along.
 

 
Make sure you hang some of the leaves over the edge
and turn them different directions.
I think it gives it all a more natural look.

 
I didn't have enough leaves to cover the entire space
which I thought was just fine.

 
I really love how it turned out!
And for just $3!

 
I added my glass pumpkin
and a few other fall table items

 


 
This was an easy project that took less then about 15 minutes to finish
and it looks amazing!

 
Happy Fall - thanks so much for stopping by today!
