Pinecone christmas trees. Make them into ornaments for the actual Christmas tree! Use a bottle brush and scrub the pinecone to loosen any seeds and dirt (do this over a trash can). If the pinecones are sticky, you can bake them in your oven at 170 degrees for an hour to harden the sap.
waxed leaves... Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil). When the wax 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 to dry.
