Beautiful Hanging Leaves

I LOVE the Fall.  The crispness in the air, the harvest, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the turning leaves.  Have you noticed how beautiful the leaves are this year?  Bring some into the house and hang them in the window for a fun fall display.  Imagine the reds, oranges, yellows, and greens welcoming in the fall.

1. Melt bleached beeswax over a double boiler.  Dip leaves in wax one at a time, holding by stem. gently shake off excess wax.

2. Hang leaves on clothespins to dry. Some may be dipped again, depending on desired look; let dry between coatings. Hang finished leaves from lengths of fishing line or ribbon.
