DIY Autumn Leaf Lantern by 5orangepotatoes: 'First cover a side of a glass jar with Mod podge, then place a pressed leaf (pressed for at least 36 hours) on the Mod Podge, then cover the leaf with Mod Podge. You can layer the leaves on top of each other as long as you have the Mod Podge on them. After the leaves dry I would put another coat of Mod Podge over the entire jar to seal the leaves.' #DIY #Lantern #Leaf_Lantern #5orangepotatoes
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.
