- Time:1/2 hour
1Cut Styrofoam to fit basket; more may need to be shaved off here or there to make it fit into the pocket of the basket. Note: it is okay if it is visible over the lip of the basket, as it will be hidden by the floral. Secure in place with hot glue.
2Cut the individual stems from the foliage bush where they all meet at the base of the bush; you will have 10 pieces, but will only use five per basket.
3Cut the individual stems from the mum bush where they all meet at the base. You will have 33 pieces but will only use 11 per basket.
4Cut the stick on the scarecrow pick so it is only about three inches long.
5Insert scarecrow to one side, positioning him so it looks like he sitting on the edge of the basket.
6Arrange the leaves and flowers around your scarecrow, making sure to fill the space behind it.
7Insert the decorative pick next to scarecrow as an accent.
