Deck the Halls with Cans of Spray Paint!

Jan 11, 2011 11:29PM ● Published by Anonymous

You can spray paint just about anything and make it look great and very “Christmassy.” See what a can of gold or silver can do! Go wild and try some red or green glossy paint! Stop dreaming of a white Christmas and create your own by spraying everything a soft white or creme.

You can also get crafty with spray paint by spraying craft store letters – spray paint creates a nice even surface, making these letters look very professional.

Tips for spray painting: Make sure you shake the vigorously before spraying. To avoid drips and globs of paint, position your can at least six to 10 inches away from the object, using several thin, multiple coats instead of one thick coat. Use an even side-to-side motion. Apply a coat to the entire project as opposed to completing parts of the project in stages. Let the object dry completely before attempting to re-coat.

Note: for safety’s sake, be sure to use your spray paint in a well-ventilated area (preferably outside). Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from the spray, too. If it’s windy, stay far away from your cars, objects or home (unless of course, you want them to have a nice coat of “frost” on them).
