Waxed leaves, a craft knife and a little imagination
I saw lots of online blogs featuring autumn leaf projects, I planned to press some leaves and wax them and hang them up...but I didn't want to wait for them to press, couldn't find any gulf wax, then forgot to buy cheap candles at the shop so I improvised, a bit...a lot. I melted different coloured waxed crayons, covered the leaves and then decided to make Halloween decoration by cutting out letters and spooky silhouettes!

    Dip leaves into the wax, I used the yellow as a 'base' and then dipped the ends in the purple or red...by the end I was mushing it all together! Let excess wax drip off then leave to dry on cling film
