Wax Preserve your Autumn Leaves - sort out the nicest of the bunch. Make sure they are all dry. Now melt some beeswax or old candle stubs in a double boiler, add drop or two of cinnamon oil if desired. When completely 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.
