diy confetti vase and the winners...

It was a beautiful fall weekend in Denver, we went to an evening wedding in the
 mountains, it was absolutely gorgeous and freezing nippy! I also found time for a simple and     inexpensive diy to use for a fall vignette on our coffee table, our leaves are slowly turning. 
My confetti vase was inspired by interior designer, Kelly Wearstler. I fell in love
budget doesn't include 14K Gold accessories, so I went for the next best thing - a diy!
I put my own spin on it, and tried a vase instead of a bowl.
     

Here's Kelly's bowl...isn't it gorgeous? 
/

I started with a large clear vase I purchased at Goodwill for $4, gave it a quick coat of
 Rustoleum white semi-gloss spray paint. For the gold confetti I used a package of metallic
gold sequins ($1.20) cut to my preferred size, I trimmed the round edges and cut the
 remaining square into quarters. Perfectly imperfect is the goal, no measuring required.
I adhered them to the vase with Loc-Tite Super Glue Gel in a random pattern.
(I tried my hot glue gun first but it left small visible bumps under the confetti.) 


 I spied this pretty gold peacock while thrifting and liked the vintage, formal look
combined with the modern vase. Remember the Nate Berkus tray I found at Goodwill
awhile back, I've been waiting to pull it out, I thought fall when I first saw it. The masculine
 vibe keeps the mix interesting, I love the over sized metal accents around the side.   


you're in for inspiration overload for sure!

Rebecca said...
WOW! They all should be very proud! Love it that the entire school participated in this. Great kids! I live in ne colorado a few miles from hwy 34 where the river crosses near Greeley. We were not effected by the flooding, but it is devastating to see it first hand. If you pick my name on any day I know a man I will give my target gift card to.
