Tuesday Tutorial - Preserving Fall Leaves

Don't you just love the colors of fall. It seems like this time of year the kids are always collecting leaves for projects or maybe even just for fun. Some of the leaves are pretty enough to decorate with as well. Here are a few tips to preserve some of those pretty leaves so the last just a while longer.

The authors at budgetwisehome.com tells us how to preserve leaves with an iron and wax paper.




At gardening.about.com they are showing us how to preserve leaves with glycerin.




This last one is a really clever idea. Iron the leaves flat and dip them in wax. This is a really great tutorial. You can find it at, niagaranovice.blogspot.com


With all these ideas we'll all be able to enjoy the colors of fall a little while longer.

Thanks for joining us today!
