Mini Scrap Wood Scarecrow

You will need:

*Piece of scrap wood-I used a small piece of a 2×4

*Burlap

*Jute twine

*Paint-whichever colors you prefer

*Paintbrushes

*Glue Gun-Here’s my affiliate link for the cordless glue gun I use.

The first thing I did was wrap my burlap around the top half of my board for the hat. I did fold the bottom inch or so over to make a brim for the hat.

Once I had the hat glued on I took a piece of jute twine and tied a little bow on the top of the hat to bunch it together.

Now, it’s time for the paint! I like to use smaller paint brushes for this. I started with the eyes and worked my way down the face. I used a round spouncer for the rosy cheeks but if you don’t have one you can certainly just use a paint brush to make them.

Once I had my face painted on, I then made a little raffia bow to stick on the brim of the hat.

No Sew Candy Corn Pillow Décor

Supplies needed:

*Waverly fat quarter fabric (Wal-Mart)

*Poly-fil

*Hot glue gun-click here for my affiliate link to the cordless glue gun I use

*Scisscors

*Raffia and ribbon-optional

The first thing I did was round up some yellow, orange, and white fabric. I found these fat quarters of fabric at Wal-Mart but you can find them anywhere that sells fabric or craft supplies. I had the poly-fil on hand but you can also find this at any store that sells craft/sewing items.

Next I took my yellow fabric and folded it in half. I then took my scissors and cut the base shape that I wanted for my candy corn. You want to make sure you have some good, sharp fabric scissors for this project.

Next, I did the same thing with my orange fabric.

Once you have your fabric cut to the correct shape you want to cut through the bottom fold as shown above. Repeat the same step with the white fabric. Don’t forget to cut through the bottom fold on the white fabric as well.

Now, it’s time to start gluing the candy corn together! Yep that’s right…it’s a no sew pillow! I first started by gluing together the sides of the yellow fabric, leaving the top open for stuffing. Next, I lined up the orange fabric to where it needed to be and then folded the bottom edge under for a more finished look and glued that down. I repeated the same step to the back of the candy corn. Remember to leave the middle seams of the front and back of the candy corn open for stuffing.

Next, you will do the same thing to the white fabric. Don’t panic if your fabric doesn’t line up perfectly as you can go back and trim it once you get your candy corn glued together. Make sure and leave the top of the white fabric open so you can put the stuffing in.

Now it’s time to stuff the candy corn. I like to use a wooden stick or dowel to help push the stuffing through. Once you have it as full as you would like then you an glue shut the top of the candy corn.

Once I had my candy corn all glued together I went around and trimmed up where I needed to and round the top a bit. It needed a little something more so I tied some raffia around the middle.

It looks adorable just like this but of course I had to add a bow to mine! I just used a few different patterns of ribbon and crisscrossed my pieces to make a quick and easy bow.

Scrap Wood Halloween Gnome

Supplies:

*Scrap wood-I used a 2×4

*Halloween fabric remnant-Wal-Mart

*Wood bead

*Pom-pom-optional

*Raffia

*Apple Barrel Paint-Harvest Orange

*Hot Glue Gun

*Paint brush

I started off by painting by piece of wood with my orange paint. My piece of wood was in rough shape on one end so I made that the end that the hat would go on. I knew that end was going to be covered so I didn’t bother painting it all the way to that end.

Once my paint had dried I started gluing my raffia on for the beard. I cut my raffia in to 6-7 inch pieces.

It will look a little crazy until you get the hat on and get the beard trimmed but trust me it will be so cute in the end!

Next I took my fabric remnant that I got from Wal-Mart and glued one side to the back of my gnome and wrapped it tightly around the other side forming a cone shape. I did trim my fabric down just a bit so it with fit better on my board. I then took a few shorter pieces of raffia to tie on the end of the hat. I also chose to add a pom-pom on top of the raffia to dress the hat up a little more.

Next I painted my wood bead orange. I like to use a wooden skewer when painting my beads to make it a little easier but if you don’t have one no biggie you can just hold it between your fingers.

While my bead was drying I trimmed up my raffia beard and messed with it a bit to get it to lay how I wanted and then glued on my wood bead for the nose.

I love to use this for certain crafts projects where hot glue isn’t quite strong enough for the project I am doing. This is also great for projects that are made for outdoors as it can withstand both the heat and the cold.

I hope you enjoyed this and I will add to this as I find more of my favorites!
