Scarecrow Mason Jar

Items Needed

One Mason Jar
Large brown paint
Paints of any other color
Ribbon of any color
Burlap
Hot glue
Scissors
Paintbrushes of 3 different sizes
Faux flowers
Raffia craft ribbon

1)  Paint the jar in two coats with the brown color let it dry between coats
2) Paint the mouth and eyes black and paint the nose red or orange
3) Take the hot glue and glue the pieces of burlap together to make it look like a hat (be sure to press it hard!)
4) Hot glue the ribbon on the burlap
5) Hot glue the flower on the hat
6) Cut the raffia craft ribbon in half so it will resemble hair (design it any way that you want)/
7) Place wherever you want!
