Have you seen these little spice jars in the Target Dollar Spot? They come in a pack of 2 for only $3.00! As soon as I saw them I thought they looked just like pumpkins. 😊

I decided to add a little chalk paint and twine to make them look even more like pumpkins!
First I removed the cork, then washed and thoroughly dried the jars. I applied 3 coats of orange chalk paint (this is similar to what I used) with a foam brush, making sure to let it dry between coats. Then I applied a thin coat of antique wax and wiped the excess off with a paper towel. This step helps the texture of the jar to show up. To finish off my pumpkins, I tied some natural jute twine around the top and popped the cork back in.
Such a fun little Fall project. If you can’t find these particular jars, keep a lookout while you’re out shopping. You might be able to find other fun jars that will work just as well. (You can find all the info for making the Farmhouse Mini Wood Riser pictured above in this post.)
You can also use these cute little jars without painting them. They would be so cute filled with Fall candies and tied with twine. These would be great favors on your Thanksgiving table. 🦃
