HelloIs there anyway I can stiffen crepe paper leaves?
Hi Toni, you can use mod podge to stiffen crepe paper

Spray starch works for stiffening paper too :)
Thank You Craft Invaders
Maybe try painting them with Modge Podge?
Thank You Home Road
I was going to say Mod Podge? or maybe even Hairspray? but please spray on top of a wipeable surface because of colour runs?? Craft Shops sell a Spray sealer or maybe try a Waterproofer from Good Supermarkets. If you go to a store tell them what you want to do and they will help you find items that may help! Sorry I can't be more certain, but I have never thought to do this myself as yet!
Thank You John
Hello. A spray aerosol varnish might be recommended. They come in various sheens choices such as matte gloss and satin.

Toni....You could probably use floral wire, cut and hot glue on the back then bend as needed. Good lucko
Thank You so Much Tinyshoes.. I took some advice after I spray starched my first batch of leaves and they turned out very wrinkled so I tried your suggestion on another batch and it worked perfectly.. would you have any suggestions on how to get the wrinkles out of my other leaves?
You're going to want to use something that dries quickly, since the color may run from crepe paper. Spray starch may work, also.
Thank You Cynthia
School glue rushed o gently will stiffen the crepe paper without causing harm to the paper. Perhaps coat one side then the other....very gently. The glue will dry clear.
Thank You Janice
I would try spray starch!

I agree, a few thin layers of mod podge will do the trick!
Thank You Carrie
I would use decoupage.
