How about something a bit more season today!! I’ve had the itch to find myself a good scarecrow. After scouring some good craft sales and the seasonal sections in the craft stores, I found my self empty handed. Those that know me know I am going to find a way to create my own!! In my Life Preservers kit, was the most stunning SEI papers….lots of pretty copper foil and beautiful flocked papers. Perfect for a fall scarecrow!

To make the scarecrow, I started out with a preprinted tag board scarecrow I had purchased through Oriental Trading as a craft project for my daycare kids. With my printer, I copied each of the body parts for a pattern. After I used my pattern pieces to cut body parts and clothes, I inked each piece, and then assembled by attaching onto the tag board parts for stability.

Here is a lo I created using these gorgeous papers!

Thanks for stopping by!
