Welcome to a gathering of free fall printables provided by bloggers from across the country! Each of us has created a special printable for you to download and use when decorating your house for fall. Thanks to Kristen at Ella Claire for coordinating this fun blog hop; I know you’ll find plenty of printables to inspire you! I’m sharing a tiny trio of leaves with you today along with two ways to use them. (You can download the leaf template at the end of the post.)
I used my fun leaf printable to create an entire fall tablescape. I wanted something a little special at each place setting and decided to create a mini gift basket for each guest. The fall leaf tag from my tiny trio of leaves became the adornment for the basket.
To secure the leaves onto the paper berry boxes, you’ll very carefully wrap a short piece of florist wire around the stem of the leaf. You’ll want about 2 inches extra to create a curlicue. To create the curl, simply twist the wire around a bamboo skewer then slide the skewer out.
Measure a piece of twine to wrap around the top of the berry box, and leave extra to tie a pretty bow. Stick the end of the curlicue wire into the center of the bow’s knot to secure it in place.
Line your paper berry basket with a pretty hankie (I cut mine in fourths to fit better) and fill with a special gift. I chose a beautiful Bosc pear but you can fill your basket with anything … a small scented candle, a box of gourmet chocolates, a gift certificate … you get the idea.
My fall table setting includes more artwork using the tiny trio of leaves printable. I created cute little fall bags to hold the silverware at each place setting.
Flip the printed leaf over and center it on your little drawstring bag. Holding it in place, print side down, rub over the back of the paper with the opened blender pen. The chemicals from the pen will soak through the paper and transfer the image to the fabric. Press somewhat firmly while saturating the back of the leaf print. This should take about 30 seconds.
Lift the paper to reveal a faded, aged-looking leaf. Let the fabric dry and then insert the silver and pull the drawstrings just a bit to keep them tucked inside. Your guests can keep the bags, along with their gift basket.
I like to give my guests a little gift to take home. It makes the lunch or dinner party memorable and special.
A simple bouquet of asters from the garden fill one of my white ironstone pitchers for the centerpiece. I found a fun metal floral ball to add a little texture and dimension. Its burnished color reminds me of fall.
A few pretty sprigs and stems of faux bittersweet continue the beautiful fall color. The figs were pretty tasty, too.
I hope you’re inspired to create your own fall crafts using my tiny trio of leaves printable. Now my only decision is … what’s on the menu for dinner? Maybe Grandma’s Old Fashioned Pot Roast followed by Apple Pear Gratin for dessert!
Here’s the Tiny Trio of Leaves printable available in both a Word document or PDF file.
