i hit up my local goodwill this weekend to find some candlesticks to make those amazing glitter trees i showed you on friday.

i found some silver candlesticks, which i liked the way they were, but thought they’d be best sprayed white. i also found this ceramic tree, which again was fine the way it was, but i thought it’d amazing sprayed white.

i sprayed everything with a primer, then used a white lacquer paint over top that.

and my trees … i was hoping to do a several different colors,  but my access to craft supplies is limited to walmart (i know, it’s terrible, don’t get me started). so, the only two colors i really liked were silver and red. so that’s what i got!

i think they turned out great! i’m not sure where i’m putting them yet, probably in the kitchen, but i think they’ll look great anywhere. the little white and red glass orbs are available in the gift shop along with the moss and pine.

happy monday!

    Oh those look great! I never thought of spray painting the tree. I think I’ll have to try this when I see something but don’t like the color.

    I love the little tree! It’s so precious!

    I can’t believe Wal-Mart is your only option, you poor boy. You should take up a craft drive. We could all send you something fun!

    Love the tree, what inspiration!
    I saw one of those sets of village buildings in ceramic that was less than stellar at my Sal. Army this week and could not think of how I could make them look better. Painting in miniature I think would not be my ‘thing’. You could make them all white like this tree as well!
    I did buy a brass [not my taste] bendy arm light fixture that worked, AND has 3 light settings… applied some trusty Ant. White spray paint and it’s sooo cute!

    Hey, I just saw this project featured on Better After!

    The white tree is definitely an improvement, and I am loving those glitter trees! It’s amazing what can be done with thrift store finds!
