Today, I bring you a fun easy way to create beautiful elements for Christmas decorations that uses what you have around your home! You'll need;
1. Can of Silver or Gold Spray Paint
2. Natural Elements from Nature (i.e. acorns, pinecones, leaves, pods, etc...) This is a great way to include your children - let them help you find the items from nature!
3. Bug Spray
Spread out your dropcloth to create a workspace. I find it best to do this project outside. Lay out your natural elements on the dropcloth and hit all your items (especially porous ones like pinecones) with a little bug spray. Nothing like a little bug infestation to ruin your decorating efforts! Once the bug spray has dried and any unwanted friends are absent, spray the natural elements with the spray paint. Let that side dry to touch and then flip them over and spray the other side. I like to pair silver and gold elements together to create a dynamic, interesting look. Let your newly painted items dry to touch and add them throughout your home where you need a little extra sparkle. Its a great way to honor nature within your home that is inexpensive and fun to do.
