Rustic Fall Vases

Rustic Fall Vases

These Rustic Fall Vases from Amanda Formaro are a great way to welcome guests into your home.  Using old jars that you probably have around the house is the perfect way to create this beautiful fall ensemble.  This would also make a lovely centerpiece for Thanksgiving.

  • Recycled glass jars
  • Copper micro beads
  • White craft glue
  • Gold 3D Writer paint
  • Acrylic craft paint: red, orange, red-brown, green



  1. Wash and dry jars inside and out. Put some red paint into one of the jars and turn and tap it to move the paint around. Add more as needed until inside of the jar is completely covered.

  2. Turn upside down and some scratch paper then repeat with other colors and jars. Leave upside down for about 30 minutes then lift up and move to another piece of scrap paper.

  3. Use a paintbrush or pallet knife to put the excess paint back into the craft paint bottles. Don't waste it!
  4. Leave the jars upside down for another 30 minutes then turn right side up on a clean scrap paper.

  5. Use a paintbrush to add some white craft glue to rim and about 1/4" down the side of the rim. Carefully roll glued rim in the micro beads. Set aside to dry completely. Repeat for other jars.

  6. Use a 3D Writer (I used Americana) in gold to write the letter F A L L on the jars, one letter per jar. Let everything dry overnight.
  7. NOTE: The excess paint inside the jar will pool at the bottom and could take a few days to dry up. Keep this in mind when adding silk flowers or other foliage to your vases.
