I made these Canning Jar Ring Pumpkins last year and sold them at craft shows. I used all of the rings I had so I didn’t think they were on the agenda for this year.
I was wrong! A dear friend was cleaning out her mother’s basement in preparation for selling the house and she let me do some picking.
I hit the jackpot of gold! Okay, maybe not real gold, but the rings were gold…and silver. What more could a crafty girl ask for?
Things You Will Need:
10-15 canning jar rings (same size)
Small tree branch
1/4 yd. orange or yellow tulle
Fall leaves and berries
Hot glue gun
What To Do:
Strip and snip off the tiny sticks of a 1″ diameter tree branch using pruners. Cut pumpkin stems 3 1/2″ to 4″ long using a jig saw. The length will depend on whether you are using narrow or wide mouth rings, respectively.
Cut a 24″ length of jute twine. Thread 10-15 rings on the jute. I have made canning jar ring pumpkins with as many as 15 rings, but I prefer the look of 10 rings. Wrap the rings and jute around a stem. Thread the jute through the rings a second time.
Cinch and knot.
Fiddle and fidget the rings until they are evenly spaced (or as evenly as you can) around the stem. Note: To eliminate stress, do not cinch and knot the jute too tightly or you won’t be able to adjust the rings.
Set the pumpkin shape on your work space and push the stem down until it touches the bottom.
Apply E-6000 around the stem, where it meets the rings. Slightly roll each ring to drag some of the adhesive down and around the stem. Set the canning jar ring pumpkin aside to dry over night.
Cut a 1/4 yard of orange or yellow tulle. Unfold and fluff the tulle. Insert the tulle through the rings and around the inside of the canning jar ring pumpkin. Fluff and tuck until the tulle has filled the rings.
Tie a few strands of raffia around the base of the stem. Hot glue fall silk leaves around the stem and finish with faux fall berries.
Happy Fall Y’all!
