When were on Thanksgiving Break in the South of the US we gathered some magnolia pods as we always do to add to our continuous nature collection. They are vey similar to Pine Cones, but have a large stem on them. I've seen many others put glitter on pine cones, so I thought why not put some glitz on Magnolia Pods and dress them up for the holidays? So that is what we did.
Here are the Magnolia Pods before glitter.
Paint some glue on the pods.
Then either sprinkle and shake the glitter on the pods...
Or place them in a small box and roll them around in the glitter for less mess.
You could fashion some ribbon onto your pods or pine cones.
Hang them as ornaments or garland.
Or just lay them out or place them in a decorative bowl for the holidays or anytime.
