Scarecrow Wreath

Remember earlier this month when I said this scarecrow wreath wouldn’t be the cutest? Well… I lied. It’s flipping adorable! Not only is it adorable but it’s a lot less messy than making a full scarecrow. It’s also very inexpensive to make. If you’re looking to make a full-bodied scarecrow check out the one my mom made a few years ago by clicking this link —>DIY  SCARECROW 




Materials Needed: 

  • wreath frame
  • flannel shirt ( check your husbands closet or a local thrift store)
  • Top hat ( I found mine at the dollar tree)
  • straw
  • Embellishments ( I used leaf garland from the dollar tree, an old hankie from my husband, and a few flowers from the dollar tree)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • twine for around the bottom of the shirt
  • floral wire

How to:

Step 1:  Put the shirt around the wreath and button half way up.

Step 2:  Stuff the belly and arms with straw and button up the shirt.

Step 3:  Take a piece of twine and tie a bow at the bottom of the shirt. This will keep the straw from falling out the bottom of the shirt.

Step 4:  Cut a piece of floral wire to attach the arms in a folded arm position.  Do this by threading the wire through the flannel then attaching it to the back of the wreath.

Step 5: Use the same technique that was used in step 4 to attach the hat.

Step 6: Embellish the scarecrow with whatever your heart desires. We used leaves, pinecones, a hankie, and some sunflowers from the Dollar Tree.
