Hello my sweet friends. While at work the other day... I found a great idea using foliage or leaves.
It's a bit late for this idea regarding the beginning of Fall but Thanksgiving is around the corner. This would be wonderful for that endeavor!
Place Fall leaves in water...*I am assuming with stems intact*.
Boil one part liquid glycerine to 2 parts water for 10 minutes... let cool.
Remove brances from water. Remove dead leaves ( leaves that are damaged or shriveled).
Mash stems with a hammer or cut length wise slits in the stems. Stand stems (with the leaves intact) in H20 and Glycerine solution for 2 weeks in a cool dark place. Remove and wipe leaves down.
