Waxed Leaves.

Things You'll Need:
  • Fall Leaves
  • Beeswax
  • Double-Boiler
  • Cinnamon Oil
First, Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Second, melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can also use old candle stubs. Third put a few drops of cinnamon oil into the pot of melted wax. This makes them smeel like fall. Fourth, when it is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper. Continue until you have a nice assortment. Now you have a pile of gorgeous leaves. You could; use them in a floral arrangement, wire them to wreath, display them in a nice wood or pottery bowl or go half-blind stringing them with invisible nylon thread and hang them from the ceiling.
