How about painting a permanent plant?

For those who like the jungalow style, painting artificial plants can elevate the décor of your home. The project includes using spray paint to add fluffy and colorful balls to adam’s ribs. To give even more personality to this DIY, choose different shades and patterns.


You will need:

  • Spray Primer (400ml)
  • Spray paint (400ml)
  • Acrylic ink bottles (20ml)
  • Brushes
  • Artificial adam’s ribs

Prepare your plant

Start by cleaning it with a damp cloth to make sure it is free of dust and dirt. Place the branch in a well-ventilated area and on top of an old sheet or newspaper. It is best to throw the spray outdoors. Pass a thin layer of primer on the sheets to help the ink adhere to the plastic. Allow drying completely.


Paint the leaves

Spray the spray with the color chosen by the entire plant. Hold the tin approximately 30 cm from the surface and spread in constant movements back and forth. Allow to dry before applying a second layer if necessary. For best results, keep the can moving and at the same distance.

Create drawings

Use a contrasting shade of craft paint to add the chosen pattern to the sheets. Big balls work great. Try mixing sizes and don’t be afraid to paint in the gaps in the leaves. A small brush will give you more control and precision.–
