Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut 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.
  • 2
    Cut 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.
  • 3
    Cut 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.
  • 4
    Cut the stick on the scarecrow pick so it is only about three inches long.
  • 5
    Insert scarecrow to one side, positioning him so it looks like he sitting on the edge of the basket.
  • 6
    Arrange the leaves and flowers around your scarecrow, making sure to fill the space behind it.
  • 7
    Insert the decorative pick next to scarecrow as an accent.
