Autumn diy vase centerpiece

Hey, hey there!


Today, I am sharing a rustic Autumn diy vase centerpiece with of course rit dye, and mod podge.

I wish it could be Fall all year round to be honest with you.

The smells, colors, weather, blue skies with the beautiful foliage here in the Carolina’s is just breathtaking.

Well anyhow, it’s not, and I do like the season change and suppose would get tired if it were the same all year round.

Are you surprised at the supplies?

I didn’t think so.

I suppose soon I have to start getting on another kick of something.

I did this vase a little different in that I added these foam stick on letters to spell autumn.

Now my first thought was to remove them as soon as the vase was dry and then you would see autumn spelled in the glass.

Well, FAIL.

I tried that and it removed some of the mod podge and rit dye work of art I had painted.

So I decided to add them back and just paint over them.

I really love the Cocoa brown color.

It looks like leather when dried.

After my first coat of cocoa brown dried,

I did go over it again with a smidge of sunshine orange.

    I think Rit dye should hire you and put all your projects together to tell everyone about what you do. Everything you do is beautiful!

    HI Debbie Dear! You are the most clever one! I love this and it looks like a high end piece from some pricey shop! Hope you’re doing well, friend.

    I love it, Debbie! I think this Rit Dye project is my favourite so far. I love the rustic look of it, and the cinnamon really tops it off. I’ll have to pin this one.
    Debbie :)
