Mom Unplugged organized another group project.
This week's theme was Wax.
We decided to play along since we have been planning
to wax leaves for a while.
First we went outside to find leaves.
Then we spread them out on newspaper, and unrolled some
Then we melted the wax in a tin can inside a pot of water.
Then we dipped the leaves in the wax and put them on the newspaper to dry.
I was too nervous to take pictures of her dipping ..I was right on top of her..
repeating over and over "it's very hot!"
Then we punched holes in them and Princess strung them up.
We will continue as we find good leaves until we have a long enough piece
to hang over the kitchen windows.
Most of our trees still have their leaves.
If you joined in be sure to link over here so we can all see what you did.
Even if you didn't make something, be sure to check out all the creative ideas here.
That is how we came to making these...
Princess just had to make some of these..our version had to be different,
because we used what we already had out. ;-)
