Did you know you could transform an ordinary thrift store glass vase into an extraordinary fall centerpiece? Follow along our easy breezy tutorial to learn how.

Step 2


Step 2: Pour one paint color at a time into the vase, turning the vase at an angle to spread the paint in swirl design.



Step 3


 Step 3: Allow 15 minutes to dry between each color you’re using.



Step 4
