Works for me Wednesday- Making fall placemats!

I posted this last year but its one of my favorites and the leaves are starting to drop so I thought it was worth a re-post!

Take the littles and collect leaves.

You will need:

2 sheets of wax paper per place mat
leaves of choice
Stickers, crayon shavings, scrap booking embellishments, decorations of choice

Lay out 1 sheet of wax paper and place leaves and decorations of choice on the wax paper.

Then place 2nd sheet of wax paper and place medium heated iron on top and iron until wax paper bonds with each other.

Wahlah!! Beautiful place mats!!

I can tell you that I packed ours away last year and just got them out of the fall decorations with low hopes of them looking good. I can tell you that they looked just the way they did the day we made this is a lasting decoration!!!
