- Cut the jute bag to make a piece of jute covering the bottom of the medium pot.
- Using a glue gun, attach the jute piece and then a button for the nose (to be done by an adult).
- Draw the eyes and mouth with a marker.
- Cut the raffia into strands of about 20 cm. Fold them in half and glue them to the bottom of the pot, making them stick out.
- Place the other medium pot on the reverse side. Glue the buttons and small squares of jute to form the pockets (to be done by an adult).
- On the upper part of the pot, glue raffia stems to make the neck of the scarecrow.
Arms and legs:
- Cut the jute thread into 60 cm strands (for the arms) and 80 cm strands (for the legs). Make 6 to 15 strands depending on the size of the braids you want.
- Tie a knot and thread through the hole in a small pot (1 hand + 1 foot).
- Make a braid. Pass it through the hole of the medium-sized "body" pot to form a loop, then thread it through the hole of another small pot. Tie to fix the whole. Repeat the operation for the legs.
- Cut the raffia into strands of about 15 cm. Fold them in half and glue them to the bottom of the pots.
- Use small pieces of string to form laces.
- Glue the body and head together using the glue gun (to be done by an adult). To make assembly easier, tie the two pots together with string before gluing them.
And here is a nice scarecrow to put on the edge of a window or a piece of furniture!
