Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and I’ve been looking for some unique ways to decorate. I love the look of indoor tree branches! This would be a great project to change up for other Holidays, think St Patrick’s Day, Easter, etc.
- tree branch
- Krylon Spray Primer
- Krylon Spray Paint White (semi-gloss)
- Krylon Spray Paint (Stained Glass-red)
- Krylon Spray Paint (Looking Glass)
- Assorted glass baubles
- Wooden hearts (optional)
- plaster of paris (optional)
- Vase (or flower pot to hold your branch)
I started by using some Krylon Primer on my branch.
After the primer dried, I used my Krylon White spray paint (semi-gloss)
I gathered some glass baubles. The piece on the left was curbed. (I think it was from a lamp) The piece in the middle is from a chandelier, and the pice on the right is an ornament hook. Because they are small pieces, I taped them to the top of a box with some ScotchBlue painter’s tape.
I was so intrigued when I saw this Stained Glass paint on the Krylon site. If you haven’t been to their site, you really need to check out all the products they have to offer! You will be amazed at all of the products!
Have you seen Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint?
I used the Looking Glass paint on these items.
uh oh! My branch is too heavy. I need to go to plan “b”. oops, look over on the right, you will see a drawer left open! grrr I wonder who did that?
I used some Plaster Of Paris to hold my branch in place. I actually did it in the liner that came with the vase.
ummm that’s pretty ugly. You can see right through the glass.
I lifted out the liner and carefully put some tissue paper in between the liner and the vase. I used a layer of two sheets on top of one another.
Look how pretty those red glass pieces look! I think they may end up on my Christmas tree next year!
It’s hard to see, but the Looking Glass paint on the tear drop rod looks like a thermometer.
That Stained Glass paint even dressed up the plastic beads on the ornament hook.
