I'm thinking of spray-painting some artifical Christmas wreaths to get various colors such as pink, light blue, mint green etc. Has anyone ever done this? If so, what kind of spray paint would you recommend? Also, once they are spray painted, is there any danger (after the paint is dry) that the paint will rub off onto HM ornaments that have been attached to the newly-painted wreaths? As always, any and all info will be appreciated. Thanks in advance Alan

I seem to remember a friend of mine using something called "Design Master". She was in crafts-not sure what all she used if for, but it was her "go to" brand for most of her needs

I've done it with a full sized tree and it takes 2-3 cans worth for a good covering. I think I posted the brand name of the stuff, had to order on-line. Doing light colors like you mention, I would definitely use WHITE wreaths vs. green or you will need a whole lot more than 2-3 cans. I'll try to find that thread and bump it up, called Easter tree or something along those lines, as my extra cans of pink, blue, and light purple or in storage and I can't just grab a can to look for the brand.

Here is a link to the Design Master color chart. I think I have Robin's Egg Blue, Perfect Pink and Lavendar.

Here is where I think I ordered from. The cardboard box was soaked from a rainstorm, I guess when they were unloading cargo at the airport and the cans were already starting to form a bit of rust around the seams and they shipped me a complete new order and didn't even make me send back the others which was considerable since I ordered 3-4 cans of EACH color. Excellent customer service as it wasn't their fault the box got wet A+++~!!!

Alan, I think the Prairie Grass, Perfect Pink and Blue Sky would work for the shades you mentioned.

I used this paint to spray a small green tabletop tree black for Halloween a few years back.

Unfortunately, after the paint dries, there was quite a bit of flaking (the paint coming off, basically). Used the tree for a couple of years, and then got frustrated with the mess this year (taking it out of storage and then while decorating it), and tossed it out.

Perhaps I used too much spray paint to cover the green?
