Pressed Placemat

A Fall placemat filled with beautiful Fall leaves.

What you'll need:

  • 2 Sheets of clear Contact paper, place mat size
  • Scissors
  • Leaves
  • Waxed paper
  • Large book, Dictionary, or Encyclopedia

How to make it:

1. Gather some fall leaves.

2. Place each of the leaves between two pieces of waxed paper.

3. Place the leaves inside a large book to flatten them.

4. After the leaves are flattened, take them out of the book and remove the waxed paper. This may take a day to about a week.

5. Peel the back off of one of the sheets of clear Con-Tact paper.

6. Place sticky side up on your work area.

7. Arrange your leaves on the Con-Tact paper in any way desired.

8. Peel the backing off of the other sheet of Con-Tact paper and carefully place on top of the leaves.

9. You can trim around the edges or use decorative scissors to give it a different look.


If you have trouble trying to work two sheets of Con-Tact paper, then adhere the first sheet of Con-Tact paper to a piece of construction paper cut slightly smaller than the Con-Tact. Next place the leaves on the construction paper and cover with the second sheet of Con-Tact paper. Trim if necessary.
