Waxed autumn leaves

Here’s an easy little project which Carter and I did together one afternoon last week…

Take a selection of autumn leaves, and some wax – I used bees wax which I had left over from other projects – but Im sure clear candle wax would work just fine.

Melt the wax and carefully dip in the leaves. Allow excess to drip off and set leaves on wax paper to dry (this is very quick).

Hang and enjoy :) These look lovely and smell gorgeous (as bees wax is apt to), Im not sure how well the wax will preserve the leaves – Ill keep you updated. Jxx

  1. What a lovely idea…I think they might preserve for a long time…don’t forget to let us know in a couple of years! Beautiful! Hugs, Jill x
