A Little Scarecrow with a Gift!

FALL WREATH WITH A SCARECROWMake a fall wreath with a cute scarecrow

I do a lot of Facebook Live videos and I like to ask my viewers what they would like to see.  This fall wreath with a scarecrow was a request from a viewer like you!  If there is something you would like to see, let me know!  add this little fellow to a fall wreathI spotted this cute little fellow at Michael’s on sale!  He just seemed like the perfect to sit on my fall wreath and hold a little pumpkin.

Make a fall wreathI began with a 24″ grapevine wreath.  grapevines are great for fall wreaths, suggestive of the harvest.Make a fall wreath with a cute little scarecrowDoesn’t he look cute sitting on the wreath?  I decided I needed a brighter orange pumpkin than this one, though.

Use this technique to make a fall wreathI am always showing you this complex way to attach styrofoam to a wreath or for a swag, until a couple of readers suggested I use a button.  Select a button that is about 3/4″ across.  You don’t want too big of a button or you will keep running into it when you are trying to make your arrangement in the styrofoam.  Too small and the button could possibly pull through foam.

I used a piece of paper wrapped wire, pushed two of the ends through the button and through the styrofoam.  This button will keep the wire from pulling through the styrofoam.

Make a fall wreath with a cute little scarecrowI began by simply adding pieces of fall leaves.  I used all fall leaf stems from the Dollar Tree and cut them apart to use on this wreath.

Make a fall wreath with a cute little scarecrowI found this fall pumpkin ribbon also at Dollar Tree.  I bought two of these, each was nine feet long.  I used all of those nine feet to make this bow.  That gives you an idea of how much ribbon it takes to make a bow; always more than you think!  Put that bow in the middle of your foam and then start filling in all around the bow with additional leaves and deco mesh rolls.
