Adorable Pumpkin and Scarecrow Tealight!

Decorating With A Pumpkin And Scarecrow Tealight

As I’ve been decorating for fall, I realized I needed a scarecrow. My personal life can get very busy sometimes, so I wanted something easy and fun to create. I don’t always have the time to create something complicated, so I thought of making a pumpkin and scarecrow tealight. I knew I could make it pretty easy and I knew it would be affordable. Trying to find objects that everyone can afford is my primary goal when making crafts. I know money can be tight sometimes. We have all hit rough patches. Here you will see the process of how I created my pumpkin and scarecrow tealight.

Supply List:

Beginning Steps

To start, I grabbed my Sun Terrarium Planter and coated it with a thin layer of mod podge. Then, you want to let your mod podge dry until it is clear. Once it is completely dry, take Deco Art Cadmium Yellow and paint a coat of it all over your terrarium planter. Let that coat of paint dry completely before painting a second coat of the Deco Art Cadmium Yellow all over your terrarium planter once again. Set your planter to the side and allow it to dry completely.

Next, grab your witch’s hat. I set the witch’s hat on top of the flannel material and used the chalk to trace around the witch’s hat. Once I had traced a circle around the hat, I cut an ‘x’ in the center of the circle. This would allow me to slip the flannel material over the witch’s hat. I opened the ‘x’ flaps in the center and slipped the flannel material on. I glued it to the original hat with my glue gun and allowed it to dry.

Once the base of the hat was covered, I cut out a cone-shaped piece of flannel material. I waited for the glue to dry after I glued the cone-shaped piece around the hat. Once my hat and terrarium were both completely dried, I glued my hat onto the terrarium to create the head of the pumpkin and scarecrow tealight.

Time To Make A Cute Face

Next, I grabbed an angled brush and created the eyes using Deco Art Lamp Black. Once I painted my eyes on the pumpkin and scarecrow tealight, I took my piece of chalk and drew a triangle for the nose. I wanted his nose to look like a piece of candy corn for the Halloween season so I needed three colors: Deco Art Titanium, Deco Art Cadmium Yellow, and Apple Barrel Jack-O-Lantern. I stacked the colors putting Titanium First, then Jack-O-Lantern, and finally Cadmium Yellow. At this point, I had a cute little face but he still needed a mouth.

I decided to use Deco Art Lamp Black to create his mouth. A straight mouth is what everyone normally does so I decided to make mine squiggle. Following the norm is not my cup of tea. I like standing out from the crowd. He needed some eyelashes, so I added them with the same Deco Art Lamp Black. My pumpkin and scarecrow tealight was coming together, but I wanted to add a few last details.

Finishing Touches

I decided to add stitches to his mouth to make it look more like a scarecrow. Next, I took Deco Art Dark Scarlet and created little, rosy cheeks on both sides of his mouth. I also decided to put little white spots in his eyes using Deco Art Titanium. At this point, I was completely satisfied with his cute little face so I decided to move on to my next step. Flipping my pumpkin and scarecrow tealight over, I started gluing short strands of the paper ribbon around the bottom of the hat. This made it look like my scarecrow had straw coming out of his hat. My final step was adding a tealight. I gently placed the tealight inside of his head after I turned it on. It made him glow bright in the night!

I hope I was able to inspire you to create from the heart. Please check me out on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. This was a fun and easy craft to make. Please check out my other blog posts and have fun crafting!
