Fall on my Mind and Embossed Metal Leaves

DIY Embossed Metal Leaves - so many ways to use these in your fall decor kellyelko.com

Just a few more days until September.

Which means fall!

Which means fall decorating!

I’m busily preparing for my third annual Eclectically Fall Home Tour (15 amazing bloggers homes decked out for fall) so I’ve got all things fall on my mind.

Since I love bling and shiny things, I was happy when my pal Martha sent me this slew of metalworking supplies.

DIY Embossed Metal Leaves

1) Use my leaf template and trace the leaf with a chopstick or pencil onto Martha Stewart Metal Sheets which come in three metallic colors (I sized it to fit 3 leaves per sheet = 18 leaves)

2) Cut out the leaves with scissors

3) Use the embossing plate that comes in the Learn with Martha Metalworking Kit to create texture on your leaves and then draw “veins” using a pencil or chopstick onto the leaves

Note: if you don’t have the embossing plate, you can skip this step and simply draw veins on the leaves with a pencil or a chopstick

4) Bend the leaves a bit to create a 3-d effect and scatter them on your table, create a garland, use them as place markers – whatever you can dream up

I love that they’re flat – so you can set a steaming hot bowl of mashed potatoes on them.

Love this fall centerpiece - she made these DIY embossed metal leaves and it seems so easy! kellyelko.com

Here’s to cool weather, boots, jeans and hot toddies.

  1. I love them! What a great new project for fall. We have started having cooler evenings, and it’s reminding me that fall isn’t far off. I really do love the beautiful colors the season brings and will have to run and grab these things and get started before it sneaks up on me like years past.
    Thanks Kelly!

  2. Great new idea and you did it! Thanks Kelly and i will be back to see your wonderful decor for Fall.
