painted tip Christmas treeI adore the touches of paint I have seen on nature this season which inspired this painted tip Christmas tree. A pretty living gift for that favorite teacher, the neighbor who always watches your dog, or a boss who gave you a needed day off.

Buy a small potted tree and paint the tips in bright colors. Use foil to be specific with the branches you paint and vary a couple of colors, a metallic, and even a bit of glitter on the tree. Who needs ornaments when you have pretty painted tips!

    What a great idea!! I plan to get a real Christmas tree, and I bet this would work just as well on that!

    i want to try this! I won’t be home for much of the holiday season, sadly… but I do want to add a bit of Christmas cheer to my apartment. A little tree with bright bursts of color would be perfect!

      Becca, I love it:) My neighbor actually has an evergreen in her yard and daily I am tempted to go and give it a bit of a trimming. Winter bouquets made of it are amazing!

    What a great idea for a Christmas Tree to have around a kitten, puppy or toddler. No ornaments to worry about! Non-toxic paint will ensure a less stress Holiday for an owner of a young pet or child.

      CC, yes. You could use milk paint… it takes a day or so to make (you have to let it sit out) but it completely safe for kids.
