Materials Needed:

  • spray paint (any color)

Step 1

Remove the leaves, if you can, so they’re easier to paint. (Take a picture of the plant first so you know where to put back each one.) Set the leaves aside.

Step 2

Spray-paint the branches.

Step 3

Spray-paint the front of the leaves. Let dry, then turn over and paint the back. Let dry.

Step 4

Replace the leaves. For impact, we put the plant in a larger pot, which we also painted.
