Canning Lids Pumpkin

 I've seen photos of the Canning Lids Pumpkin floating around on Pinterest, Blog pages and Facebook. I thought, "Hey, I've got a bag of rusted canning lid rings ... I can make that." So I did!

I used 32 rings for this "pumpkin." I strung wire through the rings and twisted it tight, put some Spanish moss down in the cavity, wrapped a rubber band around some cinnamon sticks for the "stem," and pl
aced some fall potpourri around the top. I'm so glad I kept those damaged lid rings!

 I love sharing ideas back and forth online; I think it's appropriate to give credit where credit is due. As far as I could determine, this idea originated at Simply Klassic Home.


  1. I love this; I went out to the smokehouse to get all my old rings! I had just told someone I didn't need any more rings, that I was overrun with them. Now I'm not! Thanks for sharing!

    1. That's what I did when I saw a photo of this cute pumpkin too! I was ready to toss some rings that were beginning to rust. I was glad I still had them!
