Jar Ring Pumpkin

pcp 10986

Someone posted a picture a while back of a pumpkin made out of canning jar rings. I really like it so I thought I would try and make one. The hard part is coming up with the jar rings. A friend gave me these. She asked me if I was going to paint it orange or white but I told her I liked it just the way it was. I’m guessing she probably thinks I’m a little crazy as she doesn’t have the same appreciation for old rusty things like I do! Oh well, she’s probably already figured out I’m a little crazy by now anyway!

  11. I love the way yours turned out! I agree, painting it would ruin that wonderful, aged look. ~Roberta
