If there is one thing to know about me it is that I am OBSESSED with all things Mint. My entire blog should be a good indication but if you don’t believe me, this is a recent picture of my office:

So, you can see why this year I was on the hunt for a Mint Christmas Tree but to my surprise, there was NONE out there. Sure, I could find a teal or even aqua Christmas tree, but that is not the color I was going for.

That is when I decided that I would just make my own! So, if you are looking for a Mint Christmas Tree get ready to make your own!

How to Make A Mint Christmas Tree

Supplies Needed:

  • White Pre-Lit Christmas Tree – I used a Slim 7′ Christmas Tree I found on sale at Michael’s (You can find the exact one I used here)
  • Mint Spray Paint – Make sure you choose one that is paint and primer to help seal the paint. I used the Rust-Oleum 2X UltraCover Spray Paint in Ocean Mist (I almost went with aqua but when I tested it in-store, it was a little too blue for my liking)
  • Drop Cloth or Large Piece of Cardboard to stick under tree

How to Spray Paint A Christmas Tree

Once you have your Christmas tree assembled, place it onto a drop cloth or piece of cardboard and place in a well ventilated area (preferably outside).

Begin spray painting your tree. I worked from the middle to the top and then did the bottom last. This allowed me to turn the tree as needed without having to get paint on my hands.

Side note: I did not cover the lights with anything, I just spray painted over those too. They turned out lightly frosted and I liked it. If you don’t want to paint your lights, you can always cover them with tiny straw pieces or painters tape prior to spraying.

Once the tree is spray painted, allow it to dry 4-6 hours (for best results let it dry overnight).

Once the tree has dried, spray paint any spots you may have missed and allow to dry for several hours.

Move into your home and decorate! I decorated mine with black and white buffalo plaid. Everything I used is below and it made the mint colored tree pop!

I also wanted to point out that the color is a little off on these pictures. The color outside looked more blue which made me worry but when I moved it inside, it was more of a mint green which is exactly what I wanted.

Things To Note:

  • Spray paint in a well ventilated area.
  • Allow the tree to dry overnight and air out before moving into your house.
  • You can cover the lights using pieces of straw or painters tape prior to painting.
  • If your tree still has a smell after painting, you can spray using Febreze and it will take the smell away (I recommend the Frosted Pine Scent)
  • I purchased 6 cans of spray paint for a 7′ slim tree but only used 3 so the amount will depend on how big your tree is.
  • If mint isn’t your thing, these steps will work with any color of spray paint.
