Martha Stewart loves these Wax Preserved Leaves that will last indefinitely and are the perfect DIY fall decor. Dipping the leaves twice in some beeswax or paraffin wax will leave them with a lovely glossy finish that will last for years to come. If you want to decorate your home for fall with leaves but neither want crumbling real leaves or plastic leaves that are bad for the environment, these are a great compromise (as they look and feel like fake leaves, but like the best ones ever!).
