Cut the scarecrow stick down to 3 to 5 inches. The height you need will depend on the flowers you find at your local dollar store.

Step 3:

Using a glue gun or A6000 glue, adhere the flowers to the pumpkin. Make sure to leave a spot to add the chalkboard!

Tip:  If your pumpkin or squash does not stay up well on a flat surface, just glue a piece of wood to it. Below is a picture of one with wood, and one without the piece of wood on it. You can’t even see the little piece of wood I put on it, unless you tip it over a bit.

I have been crafting since I was a child and I love seeing what others create. I live near the beach so everything around me inspires me. I also enjoy activities where I re-purpose something old & discarded & make it into something cool. My favorite mantra is "Re-use, recycle, and re-make".
