Metallic Fall Vase

Metallic Fall Vase

Posted by DecoArt on Sep 18th 2016

Fall is my absolute favorite season of the year. The rich colors, leaves, pumpkins, those cooler temperatures...I love it all. I start getting really antsy to decorate around mid-August, so the fact that I waited until September is impressive! I really wanted a big piece that screamed fall in my entry to go on our table. With just a few pieces and DecoArt's Metallic Paint, I created a Metallic Painted Fall Vase that I absolutely love!

Items Needed:


Gather your supplies.

The first thing I did was cut out my leaf stencil. I just wanted four basic leaf shapes.

I then placed the leaves around the bottom of my vase and put a strip of painters tape above the top of them. I chose my first color and got started painting.

While each coat of paint was drying, I got to work on my pinecones. Using the Metallic Lustre, I just used my fingers to add some metallic shine to them.

When the bottom color of my vase was dry, I taped off another section and used the outside pieces of my leaf stencil to create painted leaves. I finished it off with my last metallic color along the top.

I put the pinecones and twinkle lights inside the vase and added some fall colored fake flowers.

I'm really happy with how my Metallic Painted Fall Vase turned out. It's a great fall addition to our entryway. The lights help bring out the metallic shine everywhere and can we talk about those gorgeous colors?! This vase is fall perfection!
