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.
