Faux aged canning ring pumpkin

Fall is officially upon us… although we have our Halloween decor displayed right now, we’re getting prepared ready for the take down of said decor… #lifeofablogger LOL!

The original idea for this cute canning ring pumpkin was created by the talented Kristin of Yellow Bliss Road. I just love her pumpkin and wish I could have used her old, pretty discolored rings. Instead, we’re putting a  little twist on it by making our canning rings look aged when they’re actually brand spankin’ new from the box. Take a look at our version and follow along to make your own!

Besides the canning rings, I used some orange bakers twine (around 12″) brown & orange acrylic paint, a pretty satin spray paint, (Krylon brushed metallic) a piece of burlap and a twig from outside.

Supplies to make a cute faux-aged canning ring pumpkin

This was an easy peasy project and took about 15 minutes to create, including dry time.

  1. Paint a light coat of brown acrylic paint, then dab orange acrylic paint loosely on the canning rings.
  2. Give the entire pumpkin a light coat of spray paint.
  3. Slightly distress with a fine grit sandpaper until the brown-ish orange paint just peeks through the spray paint.
  4. Add your stick in the middle of the canning rings.
  5. Cut a leaf shape out of burlap and tuck by the stick.
  6. Dab some hot glue on the stem + leaf for reinforcement if little hands are around. (;

That’s it! A simple piece fall decor, faux distressed Lolly Jane style:
