Red dyed leaf skeletons.
These skeleton leaves dried preserved leaves are made by removing the pulp from broad-leaf privet tree leaves, revealing the leaf veins. Leaves are then dipped in dye and dried flat.

These are great for wedding favors and decorations, jewelry crafts, scrapbooking, card making, lighting fixtures, gift packaging, or use as a teaching tool.

Leaves are approximately 2-3" long
Average width is 1.25"

The broad-leaf privet tree (Ligustrum lucidum), also called white wax wood, is a small evergreen member of the olive family. The beautiful glossy leaves inspired it's name "lucidum" (bright and shiny).

Imported. All items are stored in a smoke and pet free environment.
Orders are shipped with care via USPS priority mail. I ship ASAP, sometimes within minutes. US orders typically arrive within a few days.

Returns and exchange details
If the order does not arrive within the time estimated by the shipping service, they (USPS, etc) may be able to provide a shipping refund. I cannot provide insurance on lost items unless you purchase shipping insurance.

Refunds may be negotiated. Buyer is responsible for shipping costs, labels, and proper packaging. Refund will process upon receipt of return.

Shipping policies

I ship as soon as possible, but you should expect orders to take at least a day to process (i.e. get ready to be picked up by USPS).

Items will not be packed or shipped until payment has cleared. Note that with echecks this can take about a week.

I strive to make shipping as cheap and efficient as possible. In the event that shipping costs (plus a $1 material and handling cost) are lower than estimated, I will refund shipping overcharges. Just let me know you received your item, and I will verify shipping overcharge.

Priority shipping is insured by USPS.


Most glues will "bleed" through the leaf causing a beaded frosty look. I recommend applying glue very precisely, or using a spray adhesive. Using an acid-free glue will prolong the life of your craft.
