Today, I'm sharing a set of bright and shiny Christmas tress. I bought these wooden trees at Michaels and I had a hard time deciding how to decorate them. In the process, I created a really cool look. I painted each one with a different color of acrylic paint and then I painted over them with acrylic glitter paint in the same or similar color. The glitter paints are mainly just a clear paint with colored glitter. It made a really cool shiny almost metallic effect. I love it so much I decided to just leave them painted and not to add anything else to them. 

You could paint these to match your holiday decor and use them for great decorations almost anywhere. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back by tomorrow for Day 10!
