Canning Ring Pumpkin
Hold it right there! Do not throw all of those leftover canning lids in the trash. How about making these super cute Canning Ring Pumpkins instead? This is such a fun and frugal craft idea that will make a huge statement in your Fall decor.
I love Summer, but Fall is second favorite season. Cozy sweaters, bon fires, apple picking and of course, pumpkin everything! These Canning Ring Pumpkins can be used as a centerpiece on your table, on a mantel, staircase or anywhere else you see fit. Another way to dazzle these repurposed pumpkins is to add a little candle in the middle. I didn’t have any when I made these to that’s the way I would have made it. I try to use up things I already have. There are many different ways you could make these pumpkins your own.
- About 18-23 canning lid rings
- 8 inches of tulle about 2 inches wide
- Orange spray paint
- Gold glitter
- A cinnamon stick or wood chip
- A fake leaf from silk flowers
Almost all of these items can be found at the dollar store if you don’t already have them.
Count out your canning rings – you can use as many rings as you would like depending on the look you are going for. I used 22 for mine. Run your tulle through your rings, making sure they are all facing the same direction.
Be sure to tie the tulle in a tight knot forming a circle with the rings, and pull remaining tulle through the center of your ring circle.
Spray paint the rings, remembering to separate them as much as possible to be sure all the rings are fully covered. You can paint them before the tulle, but I wanted to give mine a little more of a shabby look. Either way will work just fine.
When that side is fully dry, flip over and paint the other side.
When your canning ring pumpkin is fully dry, add the gold glitter to give it a shimmering look. Just like anything, this step is optional, though this helps to hide any imperfections you might have with the paint. Not to mention it looks pretty darn cute.
Glue the wood chip or cinnamon stick to the middle near the tulle, and add your leaf. You can garnish your canning ring pumpkin anyway you would like. It’s yours so have fun with it. These would make an adorable craft idea as well.
Below is another version I made as well.

I know I’ve been a little pumpkin crazy and Fall JUST started. It’s felt a lot like fall for the last few weeks though since I’ve been waking up to chilly mornings, ending the day with cold evenings. A slice of cake always makes these things better, right? And a cake that looks like a pumpkin?! It doesn’t get much better than this!
Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos are all the rage this season, but the price doesn’t exactly work for me. That’s why I came up with this delicious Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino recipe. I am not a coffee drinker, but I do have a weakness for Starbucks.
