At Christmastime, decorate your tree with colorful seed packets. They make charming and fun
ornaments for garden lovers. Collect the most colorful and attractive Burpee seed packets from
year to year and add them to your collection.
To make the ornament, use a scissors and cut off the open flap at the top of the packet. Then,
use a punch hole to make a hole at the top of the packet. Tie a piece of colorful ribbon, bit
of lace, raffia, or twine through the hole.
To make a simple yet very pretty garden theme tree, hang up a few dozen seed packets and add
sprigs of dried flowers (hydrangeas, gomphrena, cockscomb and statice work well), branches of
holly, pepper berry, and a few long garlands of cranberries around the tree. Paste several
photos of your garden onto colorful construction paper and hang them up too. The seed tree will
also remind you it’s time to order new seeds for next season!
