Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin

Over the weekend, I was cleaning out my lid drawer and found that I had an abundant supply of Mason jar lids.  Over the summer, I replaced my drinking glasses with Mason jars.  I just got tired of my kids breaking and/or chipping my pretty ones.  This way, I know I can replace them with the same thing.  I can't tell you how many times I fell in love with a certain style and couldn't find it when it was time to replace a couple.  I even got a six pack of the pretty vintage blue ones from Target.  Now, a little rant -- I only have THREE left.  Why do they have to use the blue ones when there are twelve of the other???????


Now, back to the purpose of this post, I found a use for the many rings I had in my drawer.



My Mason jar ring Pumpkin.



I couldn't think of a better way to use my large supply of mason jar rings.  I am even making a few for Fall gifts.



My new sets of drinking glasses.  I love them -- I can also use them for so many other things.




Love my Dollar Store sunflowers too.






Just take your rings and string them on a piece of jute.



Bring the ends to together and tie it off.




Shoot it with some orange spray paint and add a stick from the yard as a stem.  I used a strip of festive material and there you have it.

Happy Fall.

  1. Very cute idea. I have a bunch of old lids I was going to throw away, but held on to them in case I found some way to recycle them.

  20. I love the way the pumpkin turned out! If I want to make one, though, I'll have to buy some rings. Maybe the thrift store will have some. Thanks.

  26. This pumpkin looks so hard to make until you share the secret of HOW to do it. You are brilliant, lady!

    Of course, BTW, they drink from the blue ones. They're the prettiest ones. :)

  29. I saw those blue ones (maybe we were at Target too?) and thought they were so cute! Everyone in line who saw it said something too. :)

    I like the pumpkin too.

  30. I love the pumpkin. What a great way to use those extra rings. As far as the kids using your blue jars... put their name on one of the clear ones. Let them have their own "jar" and that is the one they use.
