DIY Terracotta Scarecrow

Love this DIY fall project with terra-cotta pots, straw, and a few simple accessories!

This has to be one of my favorite Terracotta decorations! It’s simple to make and looks utterly adorable!

What You Need:

Terracotta pots

Twine

Drill

Burlap

Straw

Black, Orange and White Marker

Glue

Directions

Drill holes in the middle of ‘arms’ and ‘feet’ and ‘head’ of your scarecrow. In the body drill one hole in the middle and 2 on the side for the arms.

Take your twine and thread it through the head of your scarecrow tying a know to keep it from slipping through. Place the body of the scarecrow underneath threading the twine though and tying a looped knot that you can also tie the ‘legs’ of the scarecrow to. Attach the feet by tying a knot after threading it through the drilled hole. Attach the arms by knotting the twine inside the body threading it up and out the top of the pot. Attach the arms in the same way as the legs.

Glue in straw making sure you leave a good amount hanging out. Glue your burlap over the ‘head’ of the post and draw your face using the markers. Cute a few squares of the burlap and add it to the body for the ‘patches.

  1. Don’t see the directions to make this cute pot. Would like to make for my daughter

    1. The directions continue piece by piece following each annoying set of ads…you just have to scroll and scroll past the ads…

  2. It has the list of supplies, but no directions. Real cute, would love to make it!

      1. I think you just have to judge for yourself for the size you want…if you want one for the porch… start with 12″ body and 10″ for head and maybe 6″or 8″ for hands… just set them together and see what looks good…

  5. are the head and body the same size pot? I’ve bought the right size for the hands and head, but when I put the head on the body, it just doesnt look right to me….maybe b/c they are “naked”? lol

  6. This says to drill holes but my pots already have holes in them. I’m confused. Are there suppose to be more than the drain holes in the bottom?
