Silver Shamrocks!


Halloween is just around the corner and since I wasn’t exactly pleased with my original spooky display, I went back to the drawing board. I’m a collector and I always have a bunch of things sitting around, so I tried to pare it down some so that the scariest things could shine.


Sometimes you need a little extra oomph and thanks to 2 Japanese Maple branches and a can of spray paint, I got just that. Using the metallic silver spray paint, in about 5 minutes my branches were transformed. I can’t wait to try out the gold for Thanksgiving/Christmas decorations.


Don’t forget to send me porch pictures if you want to be included in this Saturday’s “Front Porch” post!


  1. How cute is that?

    I do wish I had a fabulous front porch. Sigh.

  2. They look great ... actually better.

  3. Love the silver leaves, and they can probably carry over to Christmas if they are still holding up! Just add a little spray glitter, maybe some holly berries or twigs, and some snow! POOF! WINTER!

  4. The silver is such a wonderful, and unexpected touch! It looks beautifully spooky with the rest of your Halloween gear. That is such a great idea.

    Have a lovely October day!



  5. Loving your transformation! What a creative idea you had - looks great! Hope you're enjoying your Autumn so far :)

  6. Nice project. I am going to find a picture for your front porch post!

  7. Oh, they look so good! You're so creative!

  8. Oooh, love it!

    I would send you our front porch photos, except it isn't a front porch - it's a door in a hallway, ha ha! And there is nothin' special about it (except that it leads to our house!)

  9. man that stuff is pretty AND scary! love philly
