Halloween Crafts {Canning Ring Pumpkin}

September 25, 2012 Leave a Comment

Need a fun and easy way to decorate your front porch this fall? Here’s a creative way to use your canning rings to create perfect little Cinderella pumpkins:

This craft is easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Canning rings (I used approximately 28 wide-mouth rings for one pumpkin)
  • String (about 18″ long)
  • A cut branch
  • decorative or real pumpkin leaves

All you have to do is string the rings (all facing one direction), and tie it together with string to create a wreath shape. Make sure you have enough rings to make a nice and full pumpkin. And don’t worry if the rings are beat up or rusty. It all adds character.

Then insert a 1″ branch. I literally went out to a tree in my backyard and cut a 1″ thick branch off and then trimmed it up on my chopsaw.

I added a leaf from my actual pumpkin plant for extra cuteness.

Then because I liked them so much, I made two more!

If you are looking for an alternative to decorating spookily, the cute pumpkin thing is really in right now. Check out our Pinterest page to see more harvest and Halloween ideas!
