This window hanging is made from beeswax-dipped leaves, perfectly preserving the beauty of autumn.

Craft With Fall Leaves
This craft is a great way to bring the beauty of autumn leaves indoors and make that color last.
Use it to dress up your Thanksgiving celebration or simple celebrate the season.
I came up with this idea when I had some leftover beeswax after making these beeswax food wraps and this beeswax candle bowl.
To get started, follow these instructions for hand-dipping fall leaves in beeswax.
Once your leaves are ready, you are all set to make your fall leaf mobile.
It’s a simple craft.
The beeswax-coated leaves are suspended from a branch using invisible thread.
You can tie the thread or better secure it with dabs of hot glue or silicone sealant.
Be sure to choose a branch that fits the size of your window and make enough dipped leaves to fill it with those gorgeous fall colors.
