A dollar store transformation that will personalize and dress up your next dinner party

Skill level: for all, Time: half hour

You can find bags of fabric leaves at the dollar store or other craft stores. They make perfect place markers for dinner parties — your guests will be so impressed and your autumn dinner party will have that extra touch. You can embroider the monogram, but fusible Iron-on Threads make for faster embellishments.

Materials needed:

  • fabric leaves (we found ours at a dollar store)
  • Kreinik Iron-on metallic threads in your choice of colors. We used #16 Braid in gold and other autumn colors
  • home iron or craft iron
  • Kreinik Teflon Press Cloth or Adhesive Press Cloth

Note: if your iron is not Teflon-coated, you will want to use a press cloth between the thread and the iron, or apply a Kreinik Adhesive Press Cloth to your iron (several sizes are available). Apply the Adhesive Press Cloth while your iron is cool and unplugged.


  1. Turn your iron on to the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  2. Lay your fusible Iron-on thread at a starting point, cover with a Teflon press cloth, then press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue working this way, working your monogram in sections. Note: the Teflon keeps the heat-activated adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron. Some home irons are already Teflon-coated, but the mini craft irons will need a sheet of adhesive Teflon or a piece of Teflon (both available from Kreinik).
