The 24 Karat (From the Yard) Spray Painted Floral Arrangement

You have to love metallic gold spray paint for it’s ability to make anything look good, especially some dried bits and pieces from my yard. If I can put metallic or put glitter on it, I am there! This is a fun, glistening gold, spray painted floral arrangement. And yes, you can spray paint dried flowers!

Yes, you can spray paint dried hydrangeas, check out for details below!

 I had some  gold and copper spray paint and wanted to do a little dried floral arrangement. It was as easy as hunting around my yard for  dried flower stems. I leave a lot of my stems and flower heads alone all winter such as grasses,Black-Eyed Susan’s, Bee Balm and Hydrangeas not only for winter interest, but I love that the bird’s can still find food in the coldest and snowiest of January.

I cut a bit of all of those things and out them on a box in the backyard. I spray painted some gold and some copper, turning them to make sure I covered the entire surface.

 Once they dried, I put them in a vase that I covered with an old sweater sleeve and a band of sparkly tape.

 I love how the same gold paint looks different on the grass heads and the Hydrangeas.The copper- colored Monarda heads are a pretty contrast in the  spray painted floral arrangement

 The Hydrangeas almost look fake. They looks so pretty painted gold (can I tell you how glad that I have spell check….So far I’ve spelled Hydrangeas wrong every time.).

 And I think the sweater sleeve dresses up the plain glass vase just enough.

  1. I can’t believe how nice it came out using dried stems. I just bought some from Micheals that are metallic and gold. It would of been so nice to make some using the real thing. I may have to go ahead and do that!
