Quick Canning Ring Pumpkin Project December 6, 2017 - Rachel Yoder Leave a comment Collect your rusty rings and sort into piles of wide mouth and regular mouth. Cut a length of wire about 8 inches long – enough to hang onto while working on your project. String rings on the wire in the same direction so they will nest. put lots of them on for a nice solid pumpkin! When you have enough rings strung on the wire, twist the ends of the wire together as tight as possible. Trim excess wire or curl it in. Add a stick from the yard as a stem!
