A couple weeks ago I was fighting the change of season here in Denver. I was wanting at least another month of summer. I even posted this Flip Flop Bin with the hopes that my efforts would carry over into the delay of the start of fall. Now as I leave for work in the morning I feel a crisp in the air and a fresh smell, plus I found some cute boots that I forgot I had and I am ready to wear them, so I find myself moving past the denial stage and into the acceptance stage. So I thought why not start to work on some fall projects. Here is an easy fall vase that can help warm your house up to welcome the color change.
- Milk jug
- Dark paint
- Light paint
- Sand paper
- Dried flowers, wheat, etc
I started out by cleaning my milk jug. Next I spray painted the milk jug a couple coats with a can of brown Rust-oleum spray paint I had on hand. It may not even be necessary to paint the jug, but I did anyway.
Now it looks like dark chocolate milk.
Once the spray paint dried I applied a couple coats of Americana Chalk Paint in Lace. After this was dry I sanded the chalk paint in certain spots to give it a vintage look. Next I wrapped jute a few times around the top of the jug and tied it in a knot. Then I inserted my faux wheat and found a perfect place to set my finished vase.
What is your favorite part about fall?
