Here’s some great ideas to create your own Christmas tree decorations using seed pods and tiny pine cones.


  • A selection of different seed pods and small pine cones.
  • Gold paint
  • Glitter
  • Fine wire or thread
  • Glue (I used a glue gun)


  • Collect some seed heads, and make sure they are dry.
  • Paint them then sprinkle on the glitter while the paint is still wet.  I have used some gold and some red glitter.
  • Cut away the stem and either glue on some string, or tie on the fine wire.
  • Have fun decorating your tree.
