How to: decorate for Autumn with PlastiKote spray paint

Although it’s sad to see the warm weather disappear, there’s something very reassuring about the onset of autumn – cosy nights in front of the fire, snuggling in blankets, hot chocolate and marshmallows…!!

Adding lovely autumnal touches to the home couldn’t be easier with PlastiKote spray paint.


Autumn garland


Spray dried leaves to make a garland. We used the lovely Orange Gloss from the Twist & Spray range and twinned it with Copper from our Metallic range – warm, autumn colouring with a hint of bling that looks great hung against this dark green wall.

With Halloween in sight, pumpkins make fabulous decoration. Spray with Clear Sealer to help them last well beyond the 31st or spray a colour to match your décor. We love these little gold pumpkins, sprayed with Fast Dry Enamel in Gold Leaf.

Upcycle glass jars into pretty tea light holders. We made a stencil of a leaf on a sticky label, cut it out and stuck to the glass. A couple of light coats of Twist & Spray Colour were applied and the leaf was peeled off when the paint dried. Pop in some gravel and a tea light, decorate with a raffia tie and there you have it. Simple!

Lisa’s skills also run to creating her own videos and you can watch the video tutorial for the storage jars here.

We asked Lisa how she got started with her business and with PlastiKote spray paint:

“After being made redundant I decided to take my passion for upcycling from a hobby to a business at the start of 2017 and set up ‘A Twist of Somerset‘.

I am based in a little village at the foot of the Quantock Hills called Nether Stowey and create all of my items from home.

I’m always keen to try a new project – big or small – using a variety of different materials.

Plastikote spraypaint is always something I have in my store, it comes in a range of great colours and is available in small or large cans. The paint is easy to apply, dries quickly and gives a beautiful finish to a project.

This storage jars project was quick and easy to do. It’s also a great way to reuse items found in the home. I used PlastiKote Fast Dry Enamel in Gold Leaf. Do watch the YouTube video tutorial  – it shows just how simple this project is!” 

You can also find A Twist of Somerset on Facebook and Twitter. We wish Lisa every success in her venture and look forward to seeing what she tackles next!
