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
- wreath frame
- flannel shirt ( check your husbands closet or a local thrift store)
- Top hat ( I found mine at the dollar tree)
- 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
- twine for around the bottom of the shirt
- floral wire
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.
