For our leaf stamp tablecloth, we needed:

  • flour sack fabric square
  • craft paint
  • black fabric marker
  • assorted leaves
  • tin foil
  • plate

I really love how this project helped my son with following directions and fine motor skills. It also boosts decision-making skills, planning, and learning colors!

How to Make a Thanksgiving Leaf Stamp Tablecloth

First, I covered our table with tin foil. Flour sack fabric is pretty thin, so I didn’t want to worry about paint bleeding through to the table.

Then we went out and collected a few leaves from the backyard. We carefully dusted them off and set them with our supplies.

Time to stamp!

We painted the backs of the leaves and pressed them onto the flour sack. It helped to stamp just one color at a time to keep the colors from getting muddy.

You could use a Sharpie in a pinch. The fabric marker did a really good job drawing smoothly and not snagging on the fabric.

Older kids could help out with this, but since my children are preschool age and under I tackled this step on my own.
