Canning Jar Ring Pumpkin

This canning jar ring pumpkin is an adorable fall craft that can be completed in under ten minutes. This is where you will find the original design. :)
Easiest and quickest Fall craft ever! Make this canning jar ring pumpkin in five minutes flat!
I knew I wanted to create some kind of pumpkin project, and when I saw my canning jar ring wreath that’s been hanging on the back of the front door, (you know, since CHRISTMAS), I got a brilliant idea.
Well, I thought it was brilliant, but you might think it’s lame. Whatever.
I figured, the shape and texture are perfect, why not turn it into a cute little junky pumpkin?
To make the wreath, you just get a bunch of canning jar lids and string them together, tying the string tightly. The original idea came from Funky Junk Interiors.
All of the lids should be the same size.

I just stuck some cinnamon sticks in the center, and added a couple of burlap leaves.


It seriously took me about three minutes.
I thought about spray painting it white or orange, but I actually like the rustic quality of the tarnished gold and silver lids.

What do you think? Totally brilliant?or Totally lame?

    Wish I hadn’t thrown out all my nasty canning rings earlier in the summer. Now the ones I have look a little too clean to use, but I’m going to make it anyway.

    This is ingenious! I am making one as soon as I am finished typing this comment. It doesn’t need spray paint as the various colors of the rings give it a unique and interesting look. Thank you.

    Hello, thank you for sharing your tutorial. I love the idea. I found a box full of mason jars last weekend at a yard sale and I was looking for some ideas to use them for crafts. And I stumbled upon your blog. I have included a link to your page from mine. I do hope that is ok. If not please let me know I will have it removed. Thank you again for the great post!
    Kind regards,

    I actually made this and painted it orange, added some fake leaves and flowers, along with the cinnamon stick and actually was able to sell them at a local festival for $10.00 a piece. thank you for the Idea and giving me the inspiration to take them a little farther to make my daughters clogging group some money.

    I saw this and thought it was so cute but when I tried to make it it didn’t turn out. I still have all of my orange painted jar rings in a pile I could not get them to fit together correctly in a circle. What is the secret? What did you tie them together with? I was so frustrated.

      Hi Charlotte. Sorry to hear you were having trouble. Make sure you have all the rings facing the same direction and arrange them one on top of the other on some twine or ribbon. Then tie the ends of the twine together. If it’s not working, you might need more or fewer rings.

    What an incredibly cute and clever idea. I want to buy mason jars just for the lids to make this. So different! I’m sure I could figure out a purpose for all of the mason jars. Thanks for sharing !
