Today I’m sharing a quick, easy little project I completed in preparation for our Thanksgiving table. I want to include natural elements in this year’s tablescape. So I gathered some fall leaves and put them between layers of parchment paper under a heavy weight for a day to flatten them. I purchased some iridescent copper paint and chalkboard paint.
I painted a coat of the copper paint on the front side of the leaves and let them dry for about 20 minutes. Then I painted the back of the leaves and let them dry again. Once they were completely dry, I used a black Sharpie to write the names on the copper leaves.
Mr. M.T. Nest and I are going to be traveling the rest of this week. So I’ll be back next week with another post.
