How do you wax fall leaves?

What can you spray on leaves to preserve them?

ACRYLIC SPRAY

How do you make a wreath with real pine branches?

Start the wreath by taking a few different boughs of greenery and bunching them together at the base of the branch. Take the bundle, and place it against the wreath form.

How do you attach leaves to a wreath?
