Sedum Autumn Joy on a Christmas Tree

I thought I would post something a little different today. I have spray painted sedum AJ gold and used it on my Christmas tree as a filler (as people use baby's breath). I did this in the spring after the Sedum had been sitting outside over the winter. The stalks MUST BE VERY DRY so they don't mold.

I was cutting it all down and I thought, "Gee, what if I painted this gold and used it as a dried flower?" Some of it I painted while it was still in the ground and some I cut down first and put on a sheet. It was sort of fun to do and another way to enjoy that wonderful Sedum Autumn Joy!

Here are the results:


  1. What a great idea Zoey. Thanks for the tip.


  2. Yet another reason I must get me some Autumn Joy. Great idea! Which method did you prefer for spray painting?

  3. Sabine, I like to paint the tops while they are still in the ground. Let dry, then cut down and get the back side.
