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.

For the top, I'll start with mums for the season, and when it gets too cold and they die off I'll put my straw hat on him.

    Did you use the pants leg instead of the waist of the jeans? And why not the top of them so the belt loops would be showing.

    • Hi Wanda, yes I used the pant legs. My initial try was to use the front of the jeans and put the arms in his pockets and use the belt loops. What I found is that the jeans I had on hand were too small to fit all the way around. (I was using jeans that were too small for my kiddos) So I cut up the legs and put strips onto the base instead.
