To be really and truly honest with you, I have a tendency for craft fails.  I don’t normally blog it, unless I manage a quick recover, as in the case of the crayon initial.

 

With these fall leaf coasters, I was NOT going to have a fail. I wanted something foolproof (or fail-proof) that would be bold and beautiful.

I decided to go with a simple cut-out design. I did make ONE “oops”.  I used a pen to draw the shape of the leaf. Don’t do that – use a pencil and then erase  it… The pen leaks through. 

 

Other than that small detail, these DIY fall leaf coasters are so easy to make! They can be made by anyone big enough not to break the coaster (though I’m not sure I fit into that category…). So, you can have each family member make one for his or her place setting. Isn’t that cool?
