Made by Hand- Falling Leaf Placemats

I made these for Thanksgiving three years ago. It was fun and easy to do! I looked for inexpensive place mats (I think I found these at Big Lots for $1 each). They were white, so I dyed them with Rit to give them that uneven brown shade. I then hot glued ribbon along the stitching lines at the edges, and used fabric paint along with these and these leaf stencils to make the mats unique- each with it's own falling leaf design.

We'll be pulling them out again soon for our Thanksgiving meal, which I am excited to be making with my MIL this year (she is an awesome cook).

I am so thankful for those I love and that love me and for the times we spend together.
