Last year I saw Martha Stewart make this awesome magazine tree, and she had covered her tree in gold glitter. I'm not much of a gold glitter person, so I just let it be bare. I thought it looked pretty cool as is, but this year I wanted to give it a bit of a make-over.
I used flat primer spray paint, and this green spray paint, plus green glitter. I wanted to use a clear top coat, that I thought I had, but I don't.
I placed the tree on a large drop cloth, and started with the white layer, then I sprayed on the green. I quickly sprinkled on the green glitter while the paint was still wet. I used rubber gloves to lean the paper tree from side to side to sprinkle the glitter on.
This is how it looks sitting on my window sill. I think it's even cuter now.
I want to make this with smaller books, so that I have some trees of different heights. I have to find an extra thick small catalogue or magazine. Hope ya'll enjoyed, and happy DIYing, chris!
