Although we appreciate the beauty of a large maple tree bursting with color, the elegant silhouette of the leaves on their own is just as impactful.
Fall Place Settings
- 6 maple leaves of different sizes
- Embroidery needle
- Embroidery floss
- Using the largest leaf as your base, layer a slightly smaller leaf on top of it, and the smallest leaf on top of that.
- Use a needle threaded with embroidery floss to stitch an X in the center of all three leaves to secure them together. Tie a knot on the back to secure. Repeat with the remaining three leaves.
