Believe it or not, you can preserve fall leaves and keep their colors rich and fresh for weeks. These three methods, fully explained here, are the most common: drench the leaves in a glycerin-water solution, press them between wax paper, or microwave them and spray with a sealant. Once your leaves are preserved, you can use them to enrich a table setting (like in this photo), string them together to create a garland or frame them to make seasonal artwork.
