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.

  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!

    Warmly,

  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!)
