I've been wanting to do this post for a week now but have hesitated because I found it on someone elses blog and I can't remember who's blog it was! I am so sorry! If it was you, please let me know so I may give credit where credit is due. It was so much fun I just had to pass it on!
Go out and pick up some pretty leaves.
When will I learn NOT to take pictures
on my red counter top?
Please forgive me.
Next, using a double boiler
(or a make shift one like me)
and melt some paraffin.
Once it has melted,
carefully dip each leaf in the wax.
Hold it over the wax and let it drip.
Then place the dipped
leaves onto newspaper that has
been lined with wax paper.
A close up:
I will scatter them on my Thanksgiving Table
but for now,
they lay along my hutch.
If you try this,
I'd love to see what you do with them!
