Leaf Stamped Napkins

These leaf stamped napkins can be made using the tree just outside your front door! They're a quick and low-cost way to bring a little nature to your dining table this fall.
Supplies Needed:


Leaves


Napkins


Craft Paint


Paintbrush


Rolling Pin


Paper Towel
Choose a leaf and turn it over so the more veiny side is facing up. Dot craft paint on each leaf. I wanted to go with brown paint for this project but decided a little sparkle wouldn’t hurt, so I opted for a metallic brown paint.
Brush paint across back of the leaf using a brush. I found a roller doesn’t distribute enough paint, so a brush is your better option.
Turn leaf over and carefully position it on your cloth napkin however you’d like it.
Lay a paper towel over the leaf (this will ensure your rolling pin doesn’t get paint on it which could transfer to other spots on your napkin, making a mess of your project) and then firmly roll over your leaf with the rolling pin, transferring the paint to your napkin.
Gently lift leaf from napkin – and you’re done! {See more on my blog All Things G&D - just click the link at the bottom of this post!}

    How do you seal the paint once leaf pattern is transferred to avoid it being washed off?
