Gourds

Cuddle-able Scarecrows!



Your kids will love helping you make these mini scarecrows!
  Don't be surprised once you pop the head on if they want to give it a big hug and carry it around like a doll!

Watching kid's affectionate reactions to their scarecrows was the highlight of the "Make a Scarecrow" class we taught last fall at the Pumpkin Patch.  Once we placed the head on the "neck", every single child would squeal with delight, throw their arms around their scarecrow and give it a huge hug! Some carried it around the farm the rest of the day!

Playing with Gourds, Dried Leaves and Mod Podge

I love playing with gourds!  Absolutely love it!  And, apparently, I am not alone.  So - I have planned a few posts to share crafty gourd goodness!

Since it is now officially Fall, I have chosen to decorate my gourd with dried fall leaves; but just so you know, dried flowers work just as well. 

I have these flowers drying right now. I just picked them from my fall garden - rudbeckia, delphinium, hydrangea, pansies, asters and lobelia - to create a fall flower gourd.
