Activity: Jacaranda Seed Christmas Decorations

We've had high winds the last couple of days, which blew down a lot of jacaranda seed pods in our front garden, so here's a method for turning them into Christmas decorations:
Find yourself a nice seed pod, and drill a hole in the top. They're quite slippery little suckers to drill through, so take care! 
Cover your seed pod with silver paint. I'd recommend spray paint, but I didn't have any, so I used silver acrylic, two coats.  
Paint a pattern on both sides with red acrylic.
This is the pattern I used. 
Add details in white acrylic, and thread a red ribbon through the hole you drilled.

You could also make a garland of these, perhaps spelling out 'Merry Christmas' or something. And of course, with other patterns and colour combinations, the possibilities are endless. =)

  1. That's an inspiration. Maybe can redeem something from the garden debris? But, first the Christmas tree...
