Here is how to clean pine needles from your carpet:

The next morning, use a stiff brush to dislodge the Christmas tree needles.
If the shampoo has done its job well, your house hoover would be enough to get rid of the needles. You can also opt for renting an industrial hoover to make sure you get each one of them.
If a few needles are still left, you can use duct tape to pull them out of the carpet. You can also use this method if you are certain there is no sap. It should be relatively easy.
