Silver paint

Here are the close up results of the silver (actually silver chrome) spray paint I used on the few bits and pieces gleaned from my garden in my quest to make a hasty “Christmas tree”.

The first pic is of the seed heads from a gone-to-seed parsley plant. I’m saving the seeds to plant parsley again. I almost didn’t notice them lying in a corner of the garden, drying out, and when I did — wow! So elegant and pretty, and slightly reminiscent of a star. 

Below is a dead protea flower that I’d picked to put in the guest room a few weeks ago.  Beside it is the flower head  after  I sprayed it. 

And the pic at the bottom is of some seed heads I picked up from the ground when walking Milly-dog down beside the creek. I think they might be acacias (from the look of the seeds) but there are so many varieties I haven’t a clue which. But I thought they came up quite well with the spray paint.

Your little ‘hasty tree’ turned out beautifully and I love the silver accents! I hope you had a wonderful day, Anne, and it was everything you hoped it would be. Merry Christmas/Boxing Day!

It is amazing what a big difference the paint makes. They are lovely and the price is right.

LOL, Patricia the price sure was right. And the location convenient. I’ve found the silver chrome spray paint is the best and shiniest.
