Home decoration is an art and you can make your home beautiful only with your creativity within a very low budget. Today I am going to share with you a very simple idea, which is for everyone. No any technicalities are required, because we are going to make a simple but really beautiful leaf mat. Autumn leaves give the news of change in season. After the green and hazy blues of summer autumn reminds us to welcome winter. So to welcome winter season, you can make leaf mat for your dinning tables. That is the wonderful way to welcome winter.
So for the leaf mat the things you needed are a piece of cotton fabric, poster board, any seasonal leaves, pencil and china marker, scissors, fabric dyes, spray bottles, empty squeeze-mustard bottles, an iron, spray-starch. If you are using new fabric then soak it in the water for a while and after rinsing dry it. Take the leave of oak or maple. Now trace the pattern on the fabric with the help of china marker, you can use any other leave as well. Then cut the pattern carefully.
For the dinning table try to make 4 or 6 leaves patterns, may be with the same leaves or different leaves. Now its time to dye the leave pattern, you can choose dyes colors according to your own choice, but according to me you can use orange, red gold and green to make it autumn leaves. Try to work outside the room and table should cover with plastic sheet to avoid the colors to be printed on the table.
You can use spray paint on the fabric leaves as well as dyes but make sure next color should be apply before the drying of the previous colors and apply dyes to the fabric leave as it required. Then let it dry completely and then rinse with water to remove the extra color. After drying, iron the leave and apply Dritz to the corners by following the instructions of the pack. This will make the fabric strong and in the end spray with starch water and iron it.
