You know that "bringing the outside in" is a fun way to decorate your home, but sadly, leaves don't retain their color for very long. Use this quick tip to make them last weeks, allowing you to prep for a Fall party long in advance! Over at Lemon Tree Creations, they've been busy dipping leaves in Gulf Wax and hanging to dry. Each leaf is still going strong color-wise several weeks after the original dipping.

They'd be fun to attach to a wreath, use for a place setting (try attaching floral wire to them first) or napkin rings, or as a simple garland. Check out the full tutorial over at Lemon Tree Creations.
