Introduction: Pumpkin Pedestal
Here's a quick and easy way to create a display that can change with the seasons.
Mason jar with lid
plastic tray - (Dollar store)
clear permanent bond glue
small seasonal objects - I used plastic pumpkins
1 artificial jack-o-lantern
artificial fall leaves
Step 1: Apply Glue to Metal Band
Using the wooden end of a paintbrush, apply glue onto the inside rim of the band.
Step 2: Glue the Lid
Flip the lid over so that the lid's writing is on the inside of the band as shown.
Press the lid firmly into the glue on the band. Allow glue to dry.
Step 3: Fill the Mason Jar
Fill the jar with small plastic pumpkins or whatever seasonal objects you choose.
Screw the prepared lid onto the jar.
Step 4: Gluing the Tray
Apply a liberal amount of glue onto the top of the lid.
Center the plastic tray onto the lid and press firmly until the glue is set.
Allow to completely dry.
Step 5: Decorate
To finish this project, add an artificial jack-o-lantern and artificial leaves as shown in the introduction picture.
The Pumpkin Pedestal is also a great way to display homemade treats.
To change out the Mason jar's contents, simply unscrew the lid attached to the tray, empty the jar, and add new objects to fit the season.
