DIY Leaf Silhouette Place Cards


September 20, 2013

Hello!

I’ve been a bit slow with blogging. There are still many boxes to unpack. I did want to take a minute away from the long list of things and re-post this fun DIY project I created last year. I hope you enjoy it! Just in time for Fall.

When it comes to silhouettes, I always love finding new ways to put them to use. This DIY project is no different! This past weekend while taking a walk with my family, I couldn’t help but notice all the wonderful colors. Midwest is magnificent in the Fall! It’s probably one of the reasons I decided to make it my home.

For this project you will need only a few things: your favorite leaves (gather up a variety of colors), your favorite pictures (profiles would be preferable), a marker, x-Acto knife or a pair of small scissors.

Before you begin, place your leaves underneath some heavy books so they flatten out before you proceed to work with them.

Step 1. Start marking the outline on each profile.

Step 2. Proceed by cutting each template with x-Acto knife or scissors.

Step 3. Next, start outlining the shape of the template onto the leaf.

Step 4. Cut out the silhouette.

I love mixing different color leaves. It makes for a nice variety.

With a thin tip marker, write the names of each guest on each leaf silhouette. Aren’t these darling?

Have you ever used leaves as part of your craft? If so, I would love to hear how you used them. Make sure to check out my other DIY crafts HERE.
