Mason Jar Lid Pumpkins

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we are bringing you all the festive decor ideas to complete a beautiful fall inspired tablescape.

Make these adorable mason jar lid pumpkins that light up. They are super easy to create and make a great accent piece for your dinner table or buffet.

The first step is spray painting your mason jar lids a color of your choice. I chose Rust-Oleum in Almond to stick with my warm fall color scheme.  I think a deep orange or even a olive green color would be beautiful as well.

You can use ribbon, string, or a thin wire to tie the lids together. I chose to use a thin burlap string as it was easier to tie tight and keep the lids together.

You will then add a pumpkin stem and leaves with cinnamon sticks & burlap ribbon.

Add fairy string lights for a glow effect or leave as is. 

These pumpkins make a for a great addition to your centerpiece. Re-usable all season long.
