  1. Gather as many white cloth napkins as needed for your table settings. (I used 19" square napkins.) Iron to take out any wrinkles.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Gather as many white cloth place mats as needed for your table settings, sized 19"x 14". Iron to take out any wrinkles.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Print out the provided acorn and leaf patterns on a piece of cardstock and cut out.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Spread out the place mat and tape it onto a board. Using a green colored pencil, trace three acorns onto the edges of each place mat. (TIP: Customize even more by varying the sizes of acorns and their placement. Think about how the charger will be placed on the place mat to determine the composition of images.)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using a small flat brush, paint the acorn spapes with Avocado Green. Allow to dry. Apply a second coat, if needed. Let dry.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Fold the napkin into quarters, vertically. (See photo.) Using an orange colored pencil, trace two leaves onto the napkin, leaving a space in between for a placeholder.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Using a small flat brush, paint the leaves with Cadmium Orange Hue. Allow to dry. Apply a second coat, if needed. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Iron the creases of the napkins so they are nice and flat. (Be careful not to put the hot iron directly on the fabric paint.)
    Step 7 Example
  9. Add the place mat and napkin to the Woodland-Themed Fall Charger Plate and the Woodland-Theme Place Card to make a complete table setting.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Use the Woodland Themed Table D├ęcor to complete the fall tablescape.
    Step 9 Example
