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


  1. Using the largest leaf as your base, layer a slightly smaller leaf on top of it, and the smallest leaf on top of that.
  2. 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.
