The Canning Lid Pumpkin is one of my favorite pumpkin projects of all time. It’s cute, simple and one of the first decorations people notice when they walk into my house. The inspiration for this came from an unpainted version I saw at Simply Klassic Home (now called Yellow Bliss Road). Whether you decide to paint it or not, this is just too easy not to try!
20 regular mouth canning lids
orange spray paint (I used Valspar Satin La Fonda Copper)
3-4 decorative cinnamon sticks
1. Spray paint the lids on each side until you reach the coverage you want. After the paint dries, you can leave as is or lightly sand some of the edges like I did.
2. String the lids onto the yarn, making sure they all face the same direction.
3. Tie the two ends of yarn together in a double knot and cut the excess.
4. Place the cinnamon sticks in the middle and adjust the spacing of the rings.
The longest part of the whole project was waiting for the paint to dry. If you decide to leave yours unpainted, it will take you all of 5 minutes to complete.
