This week got away from me, but I wanted to share this lovely fall post from my mom. These preserved fall leaves make such a pretty center piece. Here is how to preserve fall leaves:
It is best to do this soon after picking leaves. Just mix equal parts glycerin and hot water and stick the stems in the mixture. I like to use a opaque vase so the mixture doesn’t show. I have kept these leaves for over a month.
Thanks for the post mom! I especially love the preserved maple leaves. I can recall many years when preserved leaves graced our Thanksgiving table. I hope everyone has a nice weekend.
Do you have any favorite fall traditions? If so, I’d love it if you’d share in the comments!
