Holiday DIY: Gold Hydrangeas

December 4, 2012
Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. They’re hands down the easiest bloom to work with when creating full, lush arrangements and I’m constantly filling my home with them. My soon-to-be mother-in-law recently pruned her hydrangeas and instead of tossing them, she kept the tops and let them dry out. I got to take some home the other night and decided to spray paint mine chrome gold as an accent to some of my holiday home decor.
Tip: try white paint for a snowball-like appearance.
I used Montana Goldchrome spray paint, it’s the shiniest gold I could find.
Tip: Use a shopping bag to spray paint your flowers in for an easy clean-up.
