I have been looking for ideas on leaf preservation and came across several helpful websites. I've decided that I will get some glycerine from a craft or drug store and preserve the entire branch in it. The website bollow has the steps to do it. Leaves can't be preserved forever, but this method should preserve them for several years. I would like to experiment with them a bit and see what I can make out of them. I'm thinking about a necklace or hat right now. I could also make something like a display piece that someone could put in the center of their table. A wreath would look very nice. This idea has mutated a bit since the beginning.
