Do you remember when I posted about my updated front porch?
I did something crazy on a whim but it sort of worked out for me.
I have no idea what possessed me to do this.
I'm a little embarrassed to share it but since it worked, oh well.
Once I purchased my new pillows and set up everything on the porch,
I really wanted some red flowers for the watering can.
I have some real geraniums but with temps already near 100 degrees around here,
I didn't want to plant something that would need water everyday.
So, yeah, I used fake flowers...but that's not really such a crazy thing to do.
These are the fake flowers I had on hand. They are almost neon green.
Almost neon green didn't go with my patriotic red, white and blue porch.
Oh yes I did.
Don't pay any attention to the fact that it's for plastic.
It was just the red I had laying around.
Yes, folks, I spraypainted my fake flowers.
Honestly, I think they look better than I thought.
What do you think?
After I got my hair-brained idea, I did an internet search and
found I'm not the first to do this. Now they tell me.
There were actually a couple of tutorials and tips on spraypainting faux flowers.
Some professional floral arranging people
did some amazing spraypainting of fake flowers that were really pretty.
Who would want to know?
I guess I did.
So I'm sharing with you.
....hahahahaha....That's a HOOT....I think we're goin' like for like here with the chuckles....!ReplyDelete
I think your faux FAUX red flowers look PERFECT....I WISH I could come by & sit on your porch & enjoy them....!!
Have a WONDERFUL weekend....!!
Cheers from Oz,
Oh wow! I like 'em! When I saw the first picture, that was what my eyes were drawn to first. I like the shade of red it took.ReplyDelete
I love that you're so willing to try things. Good for you!
Im tickled by your confession but it looks great!ReplyDelete
LOL I love the table so much I didn't even focus on the flowers and I like the watering can so much the flowers could be from Mars...ReplyDelete
I love your site and your painted fakey flowers too!
LOL! I would've never guessed. They look beautiful. I guess you can paint anything!ReplyDelete

Yes, they make a very dry spray paint just for silk and dried flowers. It's good to know the fusion works, though!ReplyDelete
I think this is really funny, Gina! They look like red geraniums! No one would have ever guessed. :)
TeeHee . . .that was funny. I too have thought I was an original, only to find I'm not the first to try something! Glad it worked out for you! You invented a new flower . . .RED HYDRANGEAReplyDelete
Cute story! I hopped right on the internet looking for that adorable flag banner/bunting/garland you all put up but couldn't find it on World Market's website. We don't have one here in Springfield, MO, but if I make it to KC or St. Louis anytime soon, I'd love to snatch one of those up. Love it! Love your porch! Have a great weekend...ReplyDelete
I still love it, what a great idea to spray paint!ReplyDelete
Love it! I spray painted some neon green hydrangeas a couple months ago, too! I got them from the Dollar Tree and needed them to be, well...NOT so neon!ReplyDelete
Check it out! Love your blog!
