Steps to creating your own burlap scarecrow garden flag:
- Cut burlap into two 4 x 18 strips and two 12 x 18 pieces. The large pieces should be rounded on one 12 inch side.
- Use orange outdoor paint to paint the two strips plus the top 5 inches or so of the large pieces. Allow to dry.
- Use a round sponge brush to make eyes on your scarecrow with the outdoor paint.
- Paint on a mouth and nose with outdoor paint. Allow everything to dry completely.
- Sew the two large pieces together from where the painting starts all the way around the rounded edge and up until the painting starts again. Leave the painted portion open! Add raffia bundles to the “neck” area of your scarecrow while sewing.
- Layout one long strip upside down, pieces of raffia, your sewn scarecrow heads, more pieces of raffia, and your other long strip.
- Pick up carefully and sew around the long strips on your sewing machine.
- Finish by sewing across the top as well as up some on each side as shown below. Just leave a large enough pocket to fit in your garden flag hanger.
- Trim any raffia if desired with scissors and hang in your garden!
