Use linen placemats on your Thanksgiving table but dress them up with leave prints. Choose subdued colors like these in the photo and decide how you want your leaf print. You could do a border, a couple leaves clustered in the corner, or cover the entire fabric. A leave template can be found here, or just gather some leaves from outside. Paint them with a fabric paint and press them onto the fabric.
Not using placemats? This idea would be lovely on napkins or a table runner as well.
