I’ve heard of using wax to preserve fall leaves. And then when I saw something about using a crockpot to heat up wax, it suddenly hit me…paraffin! I’ve had this paraffin hand bath for several years because I got it as a Christmas present one year. They’re popular in spas and nail places, too. So we went on a leaf hunt, gathered up some of our favorites and dipped them in paraffin. This was a brilliantly easy way to preserve our leaves. I even saw a paraffin machine at a thrift store the other day for next to nothing, and I’m thinking of picking it up just for the wax!
Even if you don’t have a paraffin machine, just buy some wax and heat it up in the microwave or your crockpot. As a bonus, it’ll soften up your hands as well. Good luck!
