Instructions:

  1. Spray the tops of the succulents and air plants with white primer and let dry.  Lightly spray the ColorTex Flurry overtop of the white primer.  While the ColorTex is still wet, sprinkle with glitter.  The paint will secure the glitter in place as it dries.  Set aside to dry.

  2. Cut a small, flat spot off the top and bottom of the 3” and 2.5” balls and the bottom of the 4” ball.  Cut a small, flat spot from the top of the 4” ball at a slight angle.

If you painted some yellow or gold, they'd look like pineapples, and then you could use them in summer!

This is so magical! I would totally hang succulents on my tree. These would be cute any time of year with different colored pine cones.

This is such a creative way to display plants in the winter! Everyone always has plenty of Christmas decorations, but this is a nice winter-long project.
