Preserved Branches Tutorial



  1. Fill a vase with 1 part glycerin, two parts water. Stir the Mixture.
  2. Give branches a fresh cut with garden shears and lightly crush the ends with a hammer to reveal the veins.
  3. Arrange the branches in the glycerin solution. Place them out of direct sunlight. Magnolia branches may take about a month to absorb the glycerin.
