I love decorating for Fall.  The beautiful colours, the gorgeous foliage, the cute pumpkins. Fall is only one of two times when I go all out for the decorations in my home (the other being Christmas).

Today I want to share with you a quick and easy pumpkin that I made using a bunch of left over mason jar rings.  And of course some paint!mason jar rings before paintingThis project truly couldn’t be easier and the little pumpkins are the perfect touch of Fall for anywhere in your house.  painted mason jar rings ready to be made into a pumpkinTo make the pumpkins, you will need 10 – 20 mason jar rings.  You can use as many or as few as you’d like.  The more you have, the fuller the pumpkin will be.  Paint them all orange; I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Barcelona Orange.

When painting the rings, don’t worry about covering them perfectly if you love that worn, distressed look as much as I do.  The gold and silver of the rings peeking through the paint makes them look antiquey and old.  tying mason jar rings together to make a pumpkinOnce they are painted, make sure all of the rings are facing the same direction and tie them with a piece of twine as tight as you can.  mason jar rings painted orange being made into a pumpkin with a stick for a stem and burlap leavesFan the rings out to get a shape that you like then use a twig (or several) to create the vine in the middle of the rings.  Use hot glue to hold it in place and add some burlap leaves.  Mason jar rings painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Barcelona OrangeThat’s it!  It really couldn’t be easier.  Now you have the perfect little pumpkins to adorn your space.  mason jar ring pumpkin

I have 4 lovely thoughts, I would love to hear yours.

  1. Super fun, Lisa and I love the burlap leaves! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  2. Really cute pumpkins, Lisa! Thanks for sharing. This is a project I could see myself actually making! 😀

    • Aww thanks Cynthia! I agree, if a project is not quick and easy it gets left behind in my book… unless of course it’s a piece of furniture 😉

I'd love to hear what you think...
