Recently I collected Plane Tree seed heads from the ground in a local park - they are naturally beautiful as they dangle in clusters of 2s or 3s. As its so mild you can probably still find some now, if not keep this idea for next year.

then paint them, I used white, red & a little bit of PVA glue mixed in, then sprinkled with glitter for an extra sparkle!

Then hung them up to dry -
