Sitting Handsome Scarecrow Bale

This arrangement will sit handsomely on your front porch this fall. Be warned, the scarecrow may attract visitors rather than scare them away.

Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Leave plastic wrap on hay bale. This will keep the bale intact so the hay will not shed everywhere!
  • 2
    Position scarecrow on the hay bale. For scarecrow on pole, apply hot glue to wooden pole and insert into hay bale. For standing scarecrow apply hot glue to base of standing scarecrow and position on top of bale. Option: Position on either side or centered (as shown in photo) on the bale.
  • 3
    Note: If using scarecrow on a pole, you can seat him a little further back or closer to the front edge so his legs hang over. Try different looks with your hay bales for variety.
  • 4
    Cut off one yard of ribbon. Wrap around the hay bale, overlapping the ends. Secure with a greening pin where ends overlap and on each side of the bale.
  • 5
    Cut bush apart, using 4- 5 stems from the foliage bush and 12 stems from the mixed marigold bush. Arrange around scarecrow. Placement and style will vary depending on how and where scarecrow is positioned on hay bale.
  • 6
    Hot glue robin to the top of one of the scarecrow’s hands.
