Is it teething time for your little one?


In case you haven’t already guessed, our minds are fully set on recreating the stunning autumnal scenes from New England, US, and this craft is a simple but fun way to channel that seasonal beauty.


What you will need:

  • A terracotta flower pot
  • Cream, black and red paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Straw
  • Newspaper
  • An old hat



What to do:

  1. Place your pot on some newspaper, and coat it in cream paint for the head. Leave to dry.
  2. Once dry, tip upside-down and draw on some black button eyes, a triangular nose, a smile and some rosy cheeks (we want our scarecrow to be happy and welcoming!).
  3. Next, pop your old hat on the upside-down pot head, stuffing some straw ‘hair’ in for effect.
  4. Put in pride of place on your windowsill or outside in your flower bed.
