PUMPKINS from MASON JAR RINGS

 

MASON JAR RING PUMPKINS 


MASON JAR RING PUMPKINS
Hey ya’ll!
Time for some more Fall crafts to get us geared to the cooler months a comin’!
Here’s some cute pumpkins I recently made out of some old, leftover Mason Jar Rings.
It’s a pretty easy craft and all you really need is:
-Mason Jar Rings (save the lids too!)
-Twine
-An acorn
-Glue (I use E-6000 found at Walmart)
-Cinnamon colored paint (optional)
Okay, lets get out our Mason jar rings. 
Here’s my big ole wooden slat, bushel basket full of the ones I save:
If you don’t have any on hand, just grab a few boxes at any Dollar General or Walmart. They have tons in store now because it’s canning season. And they are only about $2.00 a box or so of 24.
Now grab you a roll of some type of twine or wire if you have any. I use this basic jute, twisted twine for about all of my crafts anymore. It is like $2.00 a roll at the Dollar General.

Alrighty, now on to the stringing of the lids.
Just basically just take a bunch of lids, facing the same way, and string them onto your twine.  Don’t cut your twine yet until you know how big you want to make your pumpkin.  
For one of my pumpkins I used the Large mouth rings and for the other smaller one, I used the regular size rings.
Here’s my sister holding it up for a pic.
It will probably take more than you are thinking of in your mind. Mine did. But the fuller it is, the better it looks.
After you get a bunch strung on it and rounded up how you like, just kinda tie the twine together to give it a strong hold.

Be sure to leave enough twine hanging out, before you cut it, to make as a cute looking vines!
And then just take you a pine cone and glue it in place right in the center top. 
 Make like a good stem.
You can buy a bag of pine cones and plastic pumpkins at the Dollar Mart right now for a $1.00. A cute variety bag!
And then just go and sort of dry brush you on some streaks of cinnamon colored craft paint to about every other ring.  Not too much color, just enough to give it a bit of something.  Kind of rub the brush off on some paper before using it.  Because you really don’t want too thick of a coat. Just kind of streak it on.
After this pic, I took my finger and rubbed off some of the orange to give it a more worn look.
And that is about all there is to this cute Mason Jar Ring Pumpkin craft!
Here’s a few more pics of them:

Hope ya’ll liked this cute little Mason Jar Ring Pumpkin idea. I wish I could take the credit for it, but I can’t. I first saw it on Pinterest.  
But whoever did come up with it first was a genius!

Halloween Labels


It's that time again! Time to add a lil creepy to our homes. And this year I did something new. I ordered some sticky Halloween themed labels from ebay, (because I didn't feel like going out and buying the sticker paper & buying images on Etsy at the moment.) So it was just because I wanted the easy way out, or I'd have taken the time to do so. lol.

I made a lil box of things with labels to go in my Peddlers Mall booth as well. Here they are after I used what I needed, I packaged the left over labels up for sale in my booth also. So people can put them on what they want, if they don't like my pre-made items.
As you see, they are just basically pre-made stickers with cute Halloween themes. That's it. Ready to stick. Just find an object to put them on. Here's some more pics of how I used them below on an old medicine bottle, can of beans and a can of tuna. I just took off the original labels and stuck them right on.

 

And here's a little display I made on the front porch. Note the cute little barn wood cabinet that my wonderful hubby Greg made! Gotta love a crafty man! :-)

I love these labels. So simple but they add a unique look for my decorations. I need to go snap some pics of the yard and area my husband decorates. I may add some later on, if I can remember.

Happy Crafting!
