Pray for Peace Pink Christmas Tree

One of my favourite parts of Christmas decorating is the trees. All kinds of trees. Whether it’s crafting small decorative trees, putting lights on our outside trees, or decorating our living room and family room trees.

I’ve already posted a few DIY trees that I’ve made, and here’s a peek at my latest one… my craft room tree.

 

Spray Painted Table Top Tree


Here are my supplies: a $2 thrifted gold tinsel tree, small vintage glass ball ornaments, watermelon pink spray paint, and chalkboard spray paint.

In order to paint the small glass balls with the chalkboard spray paint I had to find a way to hold them. I covered a piece of wood with paper and hammered in some finishing nails.

I placed an ornament on each nail. I chose to use only the ornaments that had either lost some sheen or had spots of colour missing.

Then I spray painted them with several light coats of the chalkboard paint from different directions, trying to reach all sides. This was a bit of a challenge because the force of the spray paint would cause the ornaments to spin.

While the ornaments were drying I spray painted the gold tree with the watermelon pink spray paint.

Here it is after three light coats.

Once the chalkboard ornaments were dry I re-attached their caps.

I gathered the branches in layers on either side of the centre stem of the tree. Then I used chalk to print a letter on each ornament, added hooks, and arranged the ornaments on the tree branches. I dotted each ornament cap with some silver glitter glue that’s not really visible in the photos, but it can be seen in person.

I added a simple thrifted angel as a tree topper. And here’s my finished tree.
