Scarecrow Jar

It’s time for another fall craft! This was a fairly quick craft that brightened up my table and added a little fun to my décor.

I used:

A glass jar
Acrylic paint
Paint brush
Fake straw
Plastic sunflower
Hot glue gun

To start, I painted my jar brown. It took about 2 layers to fully cover the glass. Once that was dry, I hot glued 2 cute buttons on as his eyes. I knew I was going to be adding straw and burlap, so I put them a little towards the middle of the jar which looked kind of goofy without the “hair” but trust the process! Now that his eyes were on, I used red paint to make his nose, pink for his cheeks, and black for his mouth. This finished his face, so I let him sit and dry for a while.

While that was drying, I took the straw out and cut it in about 6” sections. This made it easy to hot glue around the rim in small sections. I carefully glued the straw, then wrapped a strip of burlap around the rim and hot glued that in place as well. For the finishing touch, I glued a plastic flower on the seam of the burlap.

With his “hair” done, I finished my super cute scarecrow jar! And since I can’t let go of Halloween, it was a perfect place to put my spooky spoons from last month.
