Spray paint dried leaves to create ornate decorations for the tree.

Seashells Ornaments

Save shells from a beach trip to create these unique ornaments. Wash the sand off and then attach loops of ribbon with a hot glue gun.

Wood Ornaments


Use a wood burning kit to create detailed tree designs on log slices.

Nature-filled Glass Ornaments


Fill clear glass ornaments with things found outdoors, such as moss or mistletoe. You can also fill them with dried fruit like cranberries for a burst of color.

Tree Bark Ornaments


Hot glue pieces of bark together to create a star. Use a marker to trace inside a cookie cutter and then cut out your shape. Attach a loop of twine to complete your ornament.

      nattokinasehealth: My family uses a plastic tree, too, but I think real Christmas trees are so beautiful. Thanks for reading!

      That is a lovely tree, a lot better than the plastic trimmed tree in most homes, including my own...i'm taking notes!

      poetryman6969: Thank you! Yes, I'm sure the sweet smells of orange slices and cinnamon would blend nicely with the Christmas tree smell.
