Mason Jar Ring Pumpkin

As I am sure you have learned by now, I have become quit the collector of all things junk. I have a mountain of yarn, a garage full of interesting and some not so interesting curb finds and canning supplies coming out the wazoo. Pinterest is usually my source for new inspiration to utilize these materials. When I came across the Mason jar ring pumpkin, I thought it was so cute, I just had to give it a go.

This project is made up of 18 canning rings, leftover white spray paint, jute and rope. Total cost to me, $0.00. The perfect price!

Here’s how I did it.

First, I gave the lids 2 coats of white spray paint on each side and let them dry.

Next, I gathered up the bands and organized them to face the same direction and tied them together with the jute.

Then, I spread the lids apart, tucked in the rope stem and was finished.

If I were to make this again, I would probably use a few more rings but this is just what I had on hand and it still looks great.  I knew I had made something pretty cool when even my 3 year old knew what it was. My husband is excited that I have made use for some of this clutter we have around here.
