Evite Party Ideas Paid PostDress up your table with DIY pressed-leaf plates for a fall get-together, Friendsgiving gathering or Thanksgiving feast. (Bonus: Since the plates are disposable, cleanup is a breeze.) Get the how-to below. Dinner Table Dress-Up: DIY Leaf-Pressed Plates

Time: About 2 minutes per plate + at least 1 hour drying time

Difficulty: Easy



Step 1: Gather fall leaves. To determine how many leaves you’ll need, decide whether you want 1 large leaf or an assortment of little leaves for each plate. You’ll need to use two plain plastic plates to make each DIY leaf-pressed plate.

Step 2: Spray adhesive on the top of one plate and arrange leaves (wear latex gloves to protect your hands). Then spray adhesive over the leaves, place the second plate on top and press down to secure plates together.
