In the past I made a flower pot Nutcracker. He was so much fun to make, I decided to try making a flower pot scarecrow for fall!
I used 3 flower pots for this project.
The first flower pot I painted with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk paint. The larger portion would be the face and I used the color Sheepskin, and the rim I used Vintage Mustard. I set that aside to dry.
The second flower pot I flipped upside down and slipped over a child’s shirt for the body.
I cut off the excess, and then used Mod Podge to adhere the shirt around the rim to the inside of the flower pot.
On the 3rd flower pot I painted Mod Podge onto it.
I then took a pair of old jeans, cut them and stuck them to the flower pot.
I then painted Mod Podge over the top of the jeans. I let this dry completely.
On the first flower pot (head) I hot glued on some raffia onto the rim, & hot glued two buttons on for eyes. I painted on a nose with Apple Barrel Outrageous Orange Multi-Surface Acrylic paint. I drew a mouth on with a black permanent marker.
I put silicone on the edge of the bottom flower pot, and I stuck the body together.
I then put silicone on the top of the shirt flower pot and placed the head onto that. I used a little hot glue and placed a little raffia where the shirt didn’t quite come together on the flower pot.
I added a rope for a belt and secured the sleeves in the back with a rubber band.
To finish him I could either add a straw hat.
Or I could plant mums in him. I decided to start here and when the mums die, I can put the hat on him.
