Pinterest Copycat: Pumpkin Mason Jar

We've been having autumn-like weather in NY lately.  I think I've put the air-conditioner on twice all summer and I'm loving that! The cool temperatures have definitely gotten me in the mood for some fall creations.  This one is Pinterest copycat: a pumpkin Mason jar.
I think the actual pin was for an apple but I made mine into a pumpkin.  I painted the glass part orange and the lids green.  Then I added the painted wood spool as the stem.
Then I painted some Scrabble wood blocks black and played around with some lettering.  Too early for Halloween phrases so I stuck with autumn and pumpkins.  
The black will definitely work well for some creepy Halloween words too.  I'm picturing them on a stack of black books - like the bunch I got at the thrift store last week.

Cute. I did a couple of Halloween things this past week, too, although I don't normally feel the "itch" to do Fall this early.
