Finishing the Pumpkin Jars

This project has taken waaaaaaaaaaay longer than I intended. I guess I didn’t realize how difficult it would be putting the finishing touches on the jar. There is nothing green and ribbon-like that I didn’t walk out of the Dollar Tree with today in hopes I would come up with something cute. Now the problem is deciding what exactly we should use and how to use it….

That’s why I need your help.

First off, here are our “contestants”:

Each of them have a few different characteristics and decorations. The ribbons are not all “stuck on” very well, since we are still deciding what to do here. Our main issue is what kind of jars to use, and what kind of ribbon or extra decoration goes at the top.

Ignore the crappy paint job here folks. I’m not finished yet. Basically I wanted to see what the jars without lids looked like with the top painted green. I kinda like this ribbon, but don’t know if it matches the painted top now.

Personally I like this ribbon, but my daughter doesn’t like the bow. Maybe it would look more cute with a small bow? Or how about if the bow was higher?


The ribbon decided to go off in a weird direction here, but I still love the pattern and the curl. Maybe if it sat a little more like the first one, it would be my favorite. I’m also unsure of this jar. The quilted jars I could not paint as easy as the flat.

Any and all feedback on this project would be MUCH appreciated. Also, if you have done a similar project, I would LOVE to see your finished project!


Oh, and just for fun….
