As a Lowe’s Creative Ideas Creator & Influencer, our challenge this month was to “Make our House Sparkle for the New Year”. My first thought was GLITTER Spray paint! I’m also giving away a $75 gift Card to Lowe’s! I usually don’t decorate for New Years Eve. But I do like to represent “winter” after all the Christmas decorations are put away. Each year, I buy white poinsettias because they cross over into January easier than the red ones. Why not make THEM sparkle? Any excuse to play with glitter, right?
Valspar makes a great glitter spray paint in several colors. They had green, red, silver and gold at my local Lowes. I chose the silver, took my poinsettias outside and got busy. (I also got my Poinsettia’s there…..they had BIG ones for much less) Because this glitter spray paint is very light, there was no fear in coating the flower completely. It’s just enough to give it a nice sheen when the sun or light hits it. If I WAS decorating for New Years Eve, these would be perfect! They’ll also be perfect to move me into January.
Of course this can be done with red poinsettias too. It’s all personal preference. It was hard to really capture how shimmery they turned out. They really are beautiful. This project is SO simple and doesn’t take a special skill…. my kind of project!
