Snow Frosted Christmas Tree DIY

I'm hanging out at my Sister's house this week helping her decorate, making Christmas presents, etc and we wanted to do something fun to her tree. After a bit of googling, Taylor decided she wanted to spray paint her Christmas tree.

We didn't end up using spray paint exactly, what we used was "spray on snow." Which turned out pretty cool! It muted the bright green of the artificial tree and gives it a pretty holiday look.

Supplies: Christmas tree, (our was artificial) Spray on Snow, (we used Santa Snow) Glitter Spray, Gold Glitter

1. Set up your tree somewhere outside where you can spray the snow without getting it on anything important.

2. Start spraying on the fake snow! We didn't spray it on too heavy, just enough to coat the tips nicely and more lightly on other places.

3. While the snow is still wet, sprinkle gold glitter on the ends of your branches.

See the before/after photos? It definitely made the $20 artificial tree go from drab to fab!

Do you use a real or fake tree? How do you decorate it?

  1. Yay! My tree! Thanks for your help on it! This is a great post to kick off all of your christmas diy's!

  2. Wow, this looks great! We have a real tree (I grew up with a fake, but my hubs has always had real so we stuck to that). We use a mix of vintage, nerdy, and homemade ornaments. And for lights, I always had colored, he had white, so now we do both and have a very bright tree!

    1. I would LOVE to see your tree! How did you get the vintage ornaments or are they made to look vintage? I am a vintage kind of girl and am anxious to hear how people doing things themselves to make it look that way.

  3. Oh it looks so much prettier with the "snow" and glitter!!!


I love your comments!
