I'm not sure if it will work with Mistletoe and Mangolia leaves, but it's probably worth a try: I use to know a lady that preserved eucolyptus branches for swags by cutting fresh ends and then soaking the ends in either glycerine or anti-freeze for a few days.

I am not sure this will work, but I have bought cat litter and used it on leaves and small flowers. It dries them out and they are pretty. Just cut them lay in a tray, cover with litter, and then layer again if needed until you have amount you want done. I have also read in my MICROWAVE INSTRUCTION BOOK, it can be done in it, but never tried it.....I want to preserve red, peppers I have harvested from my garden, so I am gonna try the cat litter method......Good luck tmelton (at) wayxcable (dot) com

Did any of the suggestions work? I am trying to preserve fresh mistletoe now myself and found you had already tried.

I was told by a lot of people to dip the base of them in glycerin.

I am making a large magnolia leaf wreath. Is there a spray sealant I can use to put on the leaves to keep them from turning brown? The wreath will be hung up high in the church's sanctuary all through Advent.
