Collect some beautiful autumn leaves (make sure they are dirt free, and dry)

Melt some beeswax in a bowl over boiling water… It’s messy, so use a non food bowl.  A child should not be left alone whilst doing this as it gets very hot.

Wrap each leaf stalk with some cotton.

Dip each leaf into the wax, then tie round a kitchen cupboard handle or a branch to drip dry ( if indoors onto a kitchen paper towel.)

I have hung ours over our nature table.
