Bring Autumn's beauty indoors with leaf-printed place mats.

What you'll need

  • Glue or glue stick
  • Construction paper
  • Acrylic paint and brushes
  • Con-Tact paper
  • Scissors
  • Leaves
  • Camera

How to make it

  1. Start with a pile of leaves, some energetic kids and a camera. After the pictures are developed, pick one that captures the spirit of the day and glue it onto a place mat-sized piece of paper.

  2. Decorate the border with drawings or leaf prints (lightly paint the back of a leaf with acrylic paint, then press onto the paper).

  3. Once dry, laminate with clear Con-Tact paper or, for about $3 each, splurge and have the place mats professionally laminated at a copy shop.
