I’d like to do a centrepiece that has an LED light at the bottom, gel rocks and then white branches in a vase. We’re doing a winter wedding theme so I think that this will really compliment that theme.
My question for you ladies is whether you think it would be possible for me to collect sticks from the outdoors and spray paint them white. The only white branches I’ve been able to find at stores seem ridiculously priced and so I was thinking of doing it myself. Do you think I’d need to spray it with anything special? How far in advance do you think I could do this? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

@RunningGal: I think this would work just fine! I bought a “natural” brown twig wreath and spray painted it with 2 coats of white and one coat of glitter spray paint. You should be able to use any kind of spray paint. I got mine from Michaels. You could also do the glitter spray paint on them if you wanted, it would really add that “winter sparkle”.
I would do it a fair amount of time in advance just to be sure they dry but if you were really in a time crunch they should be dry within a day.
Good luck, sounds beautiful! 🙂

I’m actually doing something very similar..we went and cut dog wood branches and I spray painted them silver, and then sprayed them with the glitter paint…They look amazing!..you really shouldn’t have any issues, and you can save a ton of money buy cutting your own branches. I did a few of mine a month ago..because I just wanted to see it come together, but as long as the paint has time to dry , you’ll be fine

You can also roll the branches in Epsom salts after you spray paint them white to get an icy look.
