Preserving the Color of Autumn
One year I tried unsuccessfully to preserve fall leaves and conifer boughs to use on holiday greeting cards. A friend said she used glycerin to preserve leaves, but when I tried soaking the leaves in a glycerin mixture, it didn’t work. Better Homes & Gardens offers a brief video on preserving leaves for crafts and it looks easy enough to give it another try. As the trees start to dress themselves in fall colors, I thought you might want to know how to preserve the beauty of the season.
