To preserve dried autumnal leaves:
Gently melt pale beeswax over a double boiler
Holding each leaf by its stem, dip it in the liquid wax and shake any excess off
Hang each leaf (again by the stem) using a clothes peg until dry
String the preserved leaves onto clear thread and hang in your room
Sit back and admire the colours.
