This cute little guy takes the "scare" out of scarecrow. This is a little harder to make, but the product is super cute. To assemble, wrap burlap around a set of small clay pots, put strands of raffia inside of the pot, and use acrylic paint for the face. When this is done, thread four strands of jute twine through the "head" and let the sides of the strand dangle for the arms. For the legs, thread them through the "body." More details can be found here
