I have always wanted a gold Christmas tree! So this year I decided this was the year. When Michael’s asked me to be part of their dream tree challenge I was excited to give my painting idea a try. It actually was easier than I thought! So easy in fact, a nine year old can do it.
DIY Gold Christmas Tree
We used gold floral paint. We tried several different kinds of spray paint but this paint made especially for florals worked the best.
To keep from painting the lights we put drinking straws over the lights. Moving them as we painted.
Once completely dry I decorated our tree with ornaments collected through the years from places we have traveled and things we like to do. I was thrilled to be able to add to my collection at Michaels. My candy loving daughter loved this gum ball machine.
My son that was born in Texas needed Santa in a car with longhorns.
The tree turned out beautifully. The gold tree really sets of the ornaments.
You can help spread some holiday cheer by sharing a photo of my dream tree or any trees that inspire you this year on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, tag your friend, use the hashtag #TagATree and encourage them to do the same!
