I am such a huge copycat sometimes and this little project is no exception. Granted, I do have a lot of at least semi-original ideas, but some are just imitations of other cute ideas I’ve seen and just put my own little twist on. To be fair, I always try to acknowledge my source of inspiration and I am incredibly grateful when others do the same for me. For this project I completely fell in love with Simply Klassic Home’s canning lid pumpkin and knew I had to try making one.
This was a snap to make and only used a few materials, all of which I had on hand.
For the stem I rolled a length of burlap and glued down. I trimmed this up a bit as well.
Then, simply gather a bunch of canning jar bands of the same size and run a string or twine through their middles. Gather and tie around the stem. Arrange bands so that the tied portion is covered up and there are no major gaps.
I added a green felt leaf for some of the pictures and tried it without for others.
As you can see, I didn’t try to clean up or pretty up my canning bands.
Some are newer, but others are well-worn and loved.
