This was fun to make and is the centerpiece to the pint jar and jelly jar pumpkin covers. I was pretty happy when I saw this decorative half gallon size Mason (Ball) Jar in the store. It had the perfect pumpkin shape and it is big enough to put candy or cookies in. Give this as a gift. Place some homemade cookies, brownies or pumpkin bars inside. The recipient will be delighted.
