Trick-or-Treat Tree

I actually made this tree last year and I had so many requests for more, that I thought I would share with yall how I made it!
I started with my favorite spray paint and an old dingy, white pre-lit tree.  I was worried about the lights being covered up too much by the spray paint and not shining through, but it wasn't a problem.

I painted the bottom orange first.  I went branch by branch and spread them out as I went.  The spray paint covered really well.
I then painted the middle yellow and the top white, which was a little trickier because they didn't stand up on their own.

I stacked each piece to dry after painting.

I set it in a galvanized tub and added some decoration.  Trick-or-treat!
