Being by painting all of the mason jar bands orange. I just painted the top and sides, I did not paint the inside of the bands. I used three different colors of acrylic paint to create a subtle ombre effect, but you could use spray paint to speed up the process. Let the bands dry for a few hours and then spray with a clear sealant to protect the paint. Once again, give your band several hours to dry.

When you are ready to construct your pumpkin, string all of the bands onto your yarn, making sure they all face the same direction. Tightly knot the lids together and then fan them out to create a circular pumpkin shape.

You can add faux leaves, which I spray painted gold, or cinnamon sticks to create a pumpkin stem in the middle.
