Today, I have a spin on a mason jar ring pumpkin.

I have a lot of these canning rings, primarily because last year, when I went to reuse my glass canning jars, I thought I needed to buy all new lids and rings.  Turns out I only needed lids, so I have plenty of these rings lying around.

I’ve seen pictures of these pumpkins, but I thought I’d do something different than painting them, and instead, I added Washi tape.  The tape is almost the exact width of the ring, making it a perfect way to easily add some color to these pumpkins.  I even had this orange striped tape left over from my classroom, so this project was another freebie for me.

I threaded all of the rings, facing the same direction, onto a piece of wire (I think it was originally wire for hanging a picture frame, but no guarantees on that one).  There really does seem to be a magic number for the number of rings to add.  I found that 16 rings worked perfectly to create a circle.

Once they were threaded on the wire, I arranged them to overlap one another slightly, and then twisted the wires together to hold everything in place.

I spray painted a piece of electrical wire for the stem with bronze and shaped another piece into the leaf, and spray painted it green.  )Yep, I also didn’t wait long enough for the paint to cure and it started to come off when I twisted them together.  Ah, it must be nice to have patience.)

It’s another simple and cheap project to help decorate your home for the holidays.   These would be fun to customize for people as hostess gifts.  You could pick tape in the colors of their favorite sports team or to coordinate with their accent colors.

  1. This is so cute! I’m pinning this to try! I still have a bin full of spare mason jar lids from my wedding two years ago. We bought a mason jar for each of our guests to use as their cup and let them keep them as a wedding favor, but I couldn’t bring myself to throw away all of the lids because I was determined to find a use for them. Looking forward to making this. 🙂

    1. Oh my, you probably have a lot of rings, then!! This is the perfect way to use some of them up. This pumpkin probably only used half of the roll of washi tape, just to give you an idea of how much you’ll need.

  2. I absolutely LOVE this project! I am pinning this project to try later. Thank you for sharing this project with us on Welcome Home Wednesday. We’d love for you to add us to your schedule because we want to see more from you =)

  3. I love this idea!! It combines two of my favorite things: mason jars and washi tape!! Plus I happen to have a bunch of extra lids lying around!! Perfect!! Thanks for the idea! 🙂

  4. How fun! I don’t do DIY very often, but I love it when I can find easy ideas like this. These are so cute, I want to make some for my fireplace mantel. Thanks for joining the Family Joy Link Party!

  5. Stopping by from Sunday’s Best Linkup. I love the Mason Jar Ring Pumpkin. I’m a canner, so I have a ton of canning rings just waiting to be reused. Thanks for sharing.

  6. They are amazing. Looking at the images, I have never thought that the pumpkin is made out of mason jar ring without reading the title. Thank you for sharing at Family Fun Friday.
