Pumpkin Canning Band Craft Big Hit!

Recently, we posted a photo on our Facebook page from Renee, a fan from Arkansas. She’d purchased a sleeve of our canning jar rings, and whipped them up into a fabulous fall craft:

Renee used Bulk Canning Bands 1213830 (regular mouth) to make her pumpkin centerpiece. Want some bulk bands? They're in stock now at Lehmans.com and Lehman's in Kidron, Ohio.
