Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin

I am in love with these Mason jar lid pumpkins!

They are not my idea [I wish I could say they were]...

But I have so many Mason jar lids I had to give this DIY project a try.

I found my inspiration here.

I started my pumpkin project with 20 mason jar lids.

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

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

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

When the paint dried I added a stem to the pumpkin. 

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

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 the best part of the whole pumpkin is the real stem on top. 

I love it!

  2. There seems to be few ways to make this mason jar lid pumpkin, love how all look. Have lids but don't want to use them for this unless didn't paint them. Your version is cute as can be. Just depends on interpretation. Happy weekend

  3. LOVE it! The big stem version looks awesome!
