I have quite a collection of washi tape – so many different patterns and colors. I used the washi tape in my American Craft’s Live and Let Grow collection!

Washi Tape Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin Supplies
Here are the supplies need to make this easy DIY pumpkin!
- Mason Jar Lids – upcycle some or I found mine at the thrift store!
- Spray Paint (optional) – I used Krylon’s white chalk spray paint for a matte finish.
- String or wire
- Washi Tape – Live and Let Grow Washi Tape
- Wooden Cup or a branch from your yard
- Leaf ribbon (optional) – This is the one I used
How to Make a Washi Tape Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin
- Spray paint mason jar lids
- Add washi Tape. Tip – to adhere best, hold one end of washi tape against the mason jar lid, pull it taught with your other hand and apply it to the mason jar lid. The pressure helps the washi tape stretch against the lid and when it contracts it grips better.
- If you have washi tape that is too wide, simply make a cut down to the edge of the mason jar lid, then turn your scissors and run them across the edge of the lid, cutting the washi tape as you go.
- Once all washi tape has been applied to the lids, line the mason jar lids up and repeat the pattern. I used 8 washi tapes and 16 washi tape lids so each pattern was used twice.
- Run your twine or wire through the openings in the mason jar lids and pull the lids into a circle shape.
- Make a tight knot with your twine or pull wire tight and twist it. I knotted my twine three times and cut the ends very close to the knot.
- Arrange the lids so they are evenly spaced and add hot glue to the bottom of the wooden cup or branch. Place the wooden cup or branch in the center of the mason jar lids. Let cool.
- Flip the pumpkin over and add hot gue to the bottom to set the mason jar lids in place.
- Add ribbon if you want.
- Enjoy your new pumpkin!
What Size Mason Jar Lids Do You Use to Make a Mason Jar Lid Pumpkin?
I used the standard size mason jar lids but mason jars come in all sorts of sizes. I think making a pumpkin out of smaller lids would be super cute. As would a mason jar lid pumpkin using very large lids! Get creative.
