I can’t keep things alive to save my life. For real. I kill flowers. I kill plants. Countless people have tried to help me in this area, but it’s useless. Plants have a very short life in my possession.But a few years ago my BFF Laura spray painted her DEAD mums after Thanksgiving so they would be sparkly for Christmas and something in my soul LEPT. This is genius!!! So I have been spray painting my dead mums every since!

I make an attempt at spray painting my mums for you on this Facebook LIVE video. Yep, 250K people have watched the video AND I HAD THE WRONG SPRAY PAINT COLOR. For the love.

Big sigh.   

 

 So I redid the video the next day and demo’d how to spray paint a dead fern too. See. I am not particular about what plants I kill.

I also spray painted mums royal blue last fall in my Be Royal front porch decor here.

And my Facebook fan Kaseee Zaerr sent me this pic of her spray painted mums that she made for Christmas!  See…. this is totally a thing. Lol.

For more Christmas projects, look at my painted & stenciled Joy to the World pallet and my Joy barnwood sign

I also spray painted a fall berry wreath to orange here.

 
Happy painting,

Jen

    I honestly didn’t know this was a “thing”. My mums died while we were on vacation- well before Halloween. I thght I was just being cheap when I spray painted mine. I sprayed them the colors they originally were; yellow flowers & green stems and leaves. But now I will be spraying my ferns for Christmas. Great minds think alike.
