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. 🙂
Canning Jar Ring Pumpkin
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?

    While this is cute, these rings are the things I use over and over. Any ideas for the lids that we can’t re-use and that pile up a lot for those of us who are canning regularly?

    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 !
