  • First, I want to thank you all for answering me. I really am undecided about the color but to be honest my first thought was to just spray it green but then I thought if I am going to go to all the trouble I might as well make it something really original. LOL I am going to go look at the different spray paints and see what I come up with. I will post again when I decide. Thanks again.

  • Well I would think, first , are you putting lights on it, then the lights may get hot.. So becareful of a fire hazzard. I personlly would NOT paint a tree like that, due to the high risk of fires.. Secondly. You could probably go to a christmas store, ( they are located everywhere) and or a Like dillards, macys, jcpenneys, they may have a small colored tree, I went to walmart, they have all kinds of colored trees, pink, purple, green, all kinds... So please if you decide to paint it, ask the piant guy to give you the fire resitant paint. home depot sells it..
