Use real leaves and clear contact paper to make this easy placemat.

Materials Needed:

  • Clear Contact Paper
  • Leaves

Go for a walk and collect a wide variety of leaves - as many different colors and shapes as you can find.

Cut 2 pieces of clear contact paper about 2-feet long. Remove the backing from one piece. Stick the leaves randomly onto the sticky side of the contact paper. Once you are satisfied with the design, peel the backing off the second piece of contact paper and cover the leaves with it to seal them in between the contact paper sheets.

Trim around the edges; use pinking shears or other fancy edged scissors if you like!
