This lil old scarecrow wouldn't scare
anybody but he sure would be cute sitting on a desk. He has an 1 1/2" head and poly-pellets inside to give him some weight. I hot glued a flat disk onto the bottom of the rod and his head to the top, I also hot glued the bottom disk to the center of the 10" circle for his body, I didn't want any beads slipping under the disk and making him a tipsy scarecrow. I used a Sharpie for the eyes and mouth, a brad for his nose, a little raffia for hair, and I added a small burlap patch and button. I loosely hand stitched about 3/4" down from the top, all the way around the 10" circle and gathered it together. I slowly poured
some poly-pellets into the sack (those darn things just fly all over the place), I knotted the opening and hot glued the sack to the head. You don't want any of those poly pellets escaping. I tied a jute rope bow around the outside just for cuteness. Give him some rosy pink cheeks and a flower on his hat and he's ready to just sit on your desk and smile back at you.
