A Glimpse of Autumn Glory

Most of Oklahoma City is still green and defiant of the upcoming cold, but this particular road is lined with trees who have taken a bold approach to the holiday air. I was stunned by their brilliant scarlet beauty beginning to appear. What perfection! If only the trees could speak, what would these say of the chilly nights and frosty mornings?

  1. Grab some wax paper (sold byrolls, by the foil and seran plastic wrap), place a piece on counter or ironing board. Place some of these beautiful leaves on the wax paper. Cover with another sheet of wax paper on top. Put a old t-shirt over that and iron till the heat transfers the wax onto the leaves down below. Only takes a few swipes of the iron. Once the t-shirt (on top to not burn the paper) is hot you know the wax has melted onto the leaves. Remove the leaves and let cool. Then take a needle and some thread (a visit to Gabby maybe :-) and show them on the thread into a fall strand of garland and decorate your apartment, the windows, or lay flat on your car's back window or dash board!
