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.
Create a Leaf lantern this Fall. Just leaves + Modge Podge. tea lights inside the jar. Float the tealights in water; if the jar gets knocked over outside they will be extinguished instead of rolling onto your lawn and setting it ablaze.
This simple, popcorn-filled paper-bag turkey from One Charming Party crafter Sara Westbrook is a perfect centerpiece for a children's Thanksgiving table. If the popcorn is buttered or cooked in oil, use plastic bags or wax paper to line the paper bags.
