Brighten up your plain glass jars and vases with bronzed paint for fall. Especially with deep jewel toned flowers, this can be a really budget-friendly way to create beautiful autumnal decor.

For a more whimsical paint tipped detail, pick the brightest color in your palette and pair it with a deep wood monogram (below).
