Leaves dipped in wax to preserve color. I would like this hanging over my kitchen window this fall. -- beautiful idea for a mobile or general hanging decoration, would be better with resin than wax IMO
Leaves must be completely dry. Melt beeswax in a double-boiler. Can use old candle stubs. (Optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil). Hold leaves by the stem and dip in wax. Let excess drip off, then lay them on waxed paper to dry.
