September 22, 2013 marks the first day of Autumn. Autumn is the season that transitions Summer into Winter. It is the kickoff to the holiday season. With Autumn comes many of my favorite things: sweaters, cuddle weather, hot chocolate, horse driven carriage rides in downtown streets, changing of the leaves, pumpkins, thankfulness, and closeness. In my home we celebrate Fall and the changing of the season’s. We decorate our home with pumpkins, gourds, pine cone wreathes, and acorns. Today, I want to share with you how to make a fall pumpkin out of mason jar rings. They are quite simple to make and are very cute as Autumn gifts. I love the quaint country look they add to a room.
First you will need to gather some materials.
1) Mason jar rings (18)
2) paint you may use orange I chose coral. I do not recommend spray paint as it leaves a unfinished look.
4) cinnamon stick
You will first want to hand paint each ring and let dry. After the rings have dried you will want to gather them and secure them with wire. Spread out the rings in a tight round pumpkin shape. Add a cinnamon stick in the center. And you are done! If you do not want to make the pumpkin and would like to purchase a Fall pumpkin for your home, I do have these available in my shop on my facebook page.
