Everlasting leaves


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.
