Does this mean I can change the colors of my fake flowers at home, all the time? That's great! It's like buying new ones.

I always wondered how you could paint the flowers. What I love is that you can switch the color out with any you want. I can see changing the colors each season or holiday. It is a much cheaper way to do home decor than buying new all the time. I love Ashleroo's comment about being a bride on a budget. This is a neat idea. We used a variety of homemade items for our wedding and had everything we wanted for $800 including my dress that was supposed to cost that much alone.

As a bride-to-be that is on a really tight budget, I think that this tutorial would be very useful! I've been looking for ways to have some fake flowers mixed in to the decorations so that I can save some money. This tutorial is going to be so handy, because I can actually customize the colours of my flowers now! I'm really excited to give this a go.

What a great and easy idea. I have gone nuts running all over town for a certain color of flowers. I could have stopped at the discount store and gotten the color I wanted and be done by the time it took me to go to the first store. Thank you for sharing this.

What a great idea to paint fake flowers instead of running all over to find the color you want like I have been doing. I found the flowers just wrong color and did not have them in color I wanted. I have hand painted boutonnieres about 6 years ago because we could not find the teal. Took a long time we used acrylic paint. Turned out nice but too long. Love this tutorial. Never would have thought to just use spray paint. Great and quick. Anyone doing this for the holidays?
