Make metallic fall door decor using unfinished wood pieces and paint.

DIy fall door decor

I love the way metallics add a touch of shimmer and glamour to the often muted colors used in autumn decorating.  I paired a copper metallic finish with an ultra matte white background to achieve a clean, modern look.  This piece is perfect for door or mantle decor!

Paint the unfinished wood leaf with white paint.  I used Chalky Finish paint from DecoArt in a shade called “Everlasting”. The leaf is ready for paint, and no primer or sanding is needed.  Let the first layer dry, then apply another layer.  I used three layers of paint to achieve the flat matte finish I wanted.  Let it dry completely.

Paint the unfinished word cutout “fall” with metallic paint. I used Copper metallic paint from DecoArt.  After the first layer dried I painted a second one on.  Let this dry completely.

Use wood glue to attach the word “fall” to the painted leaf. Keep the project on a flat surface and let the glue dry completely.
Flip the leaf over.  Use a staple gun to attach the fall leaf garland to the back of the wood leaf.
Staple a loop of twine to the back of the leaf to make it easy to hang your fall project.

I hung my metallic leaf decor on my covered front door, and it looks great as an alternative to a wreath! It would also make a pretty addition to your fall mantle decor. It would even work as a pretty piece of wall art. Have fun crafting and creating decor for your home!
