I've had this arrangement for several years, but the orange flower wasn't working for me anymore. I decided to try spray painting the stems. Why not? I spray paint everything else.
I started by wrapping the branches in foil so they wouldn't be painted and covered the base with a bag.
After a few coats of spray paint, the orange was still showing thru as a faded pink color.
I really didn't want the pink.
With a small paint brush I added a little white paint to the petals to cover most of the pink.
I also added touches of brown paint for the center of the flower (can't remember the name of that part of the flower?). And, I touched up the "buds" with a little brown paint.
And here is it's new home, my bedroom dresser.
I'm linking to the following parties:
Thanks for hosting ladies!
