Scarecrow

by brae  

I have a Michael's craft sheet from 1992 for a scarecrow made from a large pumpkin bell, raffia and preserved leaves.  I made one of these back when I got the craft sheet, but I figured I'd make one in mini today.  Instead of a pumpkin bell for the head, I made Fimo clay jack-o'-lanterns.  Cute little guys, no?  :D

I had leftover orange raffia.  I used sewing thread for binding and an oak leaf punch for the leaves.  I fashioned the hat out of felt, shaped over the tip of a glue bottle.  The buttons are craft paper and made using a 1/16" punch.

The merry trio.  :D
