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!

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!
