diy mason jar lid pumpkin

Wondering where we've been for the last year? Well we got a bit busy... Life you could say. Cara and I are sorry that we kinda quite cold turkey but we are back now!

     So without further ado:

They are cheap inexpensive to make, take under 15 minutes, and look adorable! You could even make these with a kid you trust with hot glue gun... Yes, they are that easy. Even if you have convinced yourself you can't "do Pinterest-y things" you my friend can do this.

15 Mason Jar Lids
Cinnamon Sticks 
Green Burlap
Hot Glue
Orange Spray Paint (optional) *

*Spray paint before you tie them together 

Step One: String the lids onto the twine facing the same direction 

Step Two: Tie the twine in a double know and spread the lids back out to make a circle 

Step Three Cut a diamond shape out of green burlap for the leaf

Step Four Hot glue a thin line around the cinnamon stick and insert the center of pumpkin 

Step Five Glue on the burlap leaf

Side Note: Every time you move these you will have to readjust the lids to make a perfect looking circular pumpkin!


Super easy pumpkins. Now go make some and let us know what you think!
