Spray paint your pumpkins

Use painters tape to tape off the stem so when you spray paint the lids the stem is protected.

Spray the pumpkin with a few light coats of paint. Allow to dry fully and remove the painters tape from the stem.

    Is it possible to use more or less jar rings to create different sized pumpkins? Or is 20 the magic number?!?!?! Super cute idea ...

      That's what I was wondering too. Big ones medium ones small ones etc. Such a cute little pumpkin.

    Is there a reason that you painted the rings after you put them together ? I was thinking it might be easier if they were already painted so you didn't have to tape off the stem but i could definitely be missing something.

    thank YOU

      This is a great idea. I have many lids left over from other projects. I believe I’m going to make some snowmen as well. I have a variety of sizes.

      thanks for the great idea!!!
