Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin

I am in love with these Mason jar lid pumpkins and they are so easy to make!!

This is not my idea, I wish I could say I thought of this but I saw it online and I couldn't wait to make one of my own. 

After all, who doesn't have a ton of mason jars after painting so many with chalk paint?

You can also purchase the lids on Amazon.

And since I have so many Mason jar lids I'm giving this a try! 

I started my pumpkin project with 20 mason jar lids, not sure if more or less would work but when I began stringing them on the jute, this many looked about right.

I tied them together with a length of jute through the middle.

I'm using orange chalky paint to paint the metal lids because it sticks to almost everything.

You could also use a spray paint chalky paint

I gave the lids an initial first coat and let it dry.

When my pumpkin was dry I added a stem. 

I had a real old pumpkin stem leftover from a pumpkin last year.

Real looking pumpkin stems can also be purchased on Etsy! 

I drilled a hole into the bottom of the stem and added a dowel. 

The dowel is glued to the stem and into the center of the Mason jar lid pumpkin.

When the glue dried on the stem I gave the pumpkin a quick 2nd coat of paint. 

I added a coil of wire for the pumpkin tendril and all those leftover Mason jar lids now have a new purpose.

I think my favorite part of the whole pumpkin is the real stem on top. 

I love it!
