I love the canning lid rings turned into a pumpkin! I have so many extra rings, I'm definitely going to make that. I have a rectangular glass candle holder that I change what's in every season (a couple times a season sometimes). Fall is the hardest one for me. I do Christmas balls and ribbon in it for December, shells and sand for summer, silk flowers for spring... I'm working on figuring out what to put in at the end of this month.
