Kids Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin

Hello everyone! Here’s a simple, fun fall craft for kids using all those extra mason jar lids.

Mason Jar Lids
Orange Paint
Triple Thick Gloss
Brown Chenille Stems
Green Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks
Paint Brush

The first step is to paint your mason jar lids. I used a matte orange color, but anything goes! Glitter, holographic paint, or glow in the dark paint would be fun as well.

After the lids are dry, add a coat of sealant to keep the paint from chipping off. This is especially important if loose glitter was added, to keep the glitter from falling off. It also gives a nice shiny effect.

Once the gloss top coat is dry, use a hot glue gun to glue the lids together.  They can go in any order you’d like! 

Cut about an inch of chenille stem and hot glue it to the back of the lids. I used a tapering portion of the chenille stem to imitate a fat pumpkin stem.

Cut about a 1 ½ inch of ribbon and fold in half. Put a dot of hot glue to form a loop
Lastly, hot glue the loop of ribbon onto your pumpkin. I put mine in between the top and bottom lid, but again it can go anywhere you’d like.

 And you’re done! Enjoy!
