waxing maple leaves

while getting ready for "izakaya thanksgiving", i realized that perhaps some seasonal decoration might be nice. good thing we have a japanese maple or two.

to help preserve their color and shape, i placed them between two pieces of wax paper and then ironed them.

they are now lightly covered in wax and able to stand up fairly well.

i just wish the sun had still been out when i took that last photo because the leaves are just as vibrant as they were when i took them off the tree. ha!
