I love seeing this valley so full of color. The trees are bursting with so many different hues of red, orange, and yellow. There is beauty all around and I love just taking it all in. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and I am happy to know that I can make Wax Dipped Leaves Fall Decor to help keep those bright colors around my home all season.
Did you know that you can preserve those stunning fall colors? All you have to do is dip those brightly colored leaves in wax and let dry. From there you can use those beautiful leaves in your fall décor around your home. All you need is to head to your local grocery store and pick up some paraffin wax and start collecting as many brightly colored leaves as you like.

- Melt the wax.
- Dip the leaves in the melted wax.
- Lay out on wax paper until dry.
See how simple that is? Aren’t those colors stunning?
Once your leaves are dried you can do so many fun crafts with them. If you hit up Pinterest you are sure to find lots of ideas. I decided to make some wax dipped leaves fall décor by painting up some canning jars and decorating them for the season.
- 4 Pint Size Canning Jars
- Fall Colored Paints & Black Paint
- Burlap Ribbon
- Hot Glue Gun
- Paint each jar a different fall color. You will want to cover the entire outside of the jar. It painted two coats per jar to make sure that the glass was fully covered.
- Once the jars are painted you will need to heat up the hot glue gun and attach the burlap ribbon around each jar.
- Hold the stencils over the burlap and paint one letter per jar. Spell Fall across all four jars.
- Tie a ribbon around the top.
- Stuff each jar with the wax dipped leaves.
There are lots of ideas that you can make with your wax dipped leaves. I have seen some people hang them on mobiles, make wreaths, or scatter them on mantles. No matter what you decide to do with your Wax Dipped Leaves Fall Decor, you will enjoy the fall colors for months to come!
