Paper Pumpkin Tree...cut strips of paper from scrapbook papers with fall tones. Punch a hole into the end of each paper strip. Connect them with a metal brad.Then attach a brad to the top add leaves and a little piece of ribbon or string. Too cute!
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.
