This simple hot glue craft allows you to preserve a leaf- with a few quick steps.

Step 1: Supplies

For this project you'll need:

- a rubber potholder

- hot glue

- a tiny leaf

- a popsicle stick

Step 2: Starting the Capsule

Start by making a puddle of hot glue- about the size of a dime. Do this on the pot holder! The glue won't stick to it so you can peel it off later.

Step 3: Placing the Leaf

Place the leaf in the center of the puddle. Use the popsicle stick to help.

Step 4: Seal Your Creation

Now apply hot glue over the top of the leaf- and wait for your creation to dry.

Step 5: Finish

Trim away any excess glue and show it off to your friends and Family!

Is hot glue feviqik? That glue which dries in record time?<br>
I don't think so. Sorry.
Please just say yes or no?<br>
Hi I'm from India and I have never heard of hot glue so can you do it another way ?
<p>I'm always looking out for ideas for making my tree and plant ID markers for use outside. Am I crazy to think I could make these on a much larger scale, such as fist-sized? Yours came out beautifully.</p>
That sounds like a great idea! But instead of hot glue, I would use epoxy. and maybe use some type of mold.
<p>This looks great! Hot glue was a good idea :)</p>
