Materials Needed:
  • Wood Pieces (all with holes)
    • 16 mm round bead (head)
    • 1/2" x 3/4" oval bead (body)
    • 1/2" x 5/8" spools (legs)
    • 9/16" oval beads
  • Miniature hat (1" wide)
  • Raffia strands
  • Acrylic paint
  • Small paint brush
  • Imitation leaves
  • Plain napkin rings
  • Black fine point pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

How to make the Scarecrow Napkin Ring:

  1. Take 2 strands of raffia and tie a knot at one end. Tie the knot over again until it is large enough that it will not slip through the holes in your wooden spools.
  2. Thread two spools onto the raffia strands and slide them down to the knot.
  3. Repeat this process for the other leg.
  4. Next, thread all four strands of raffia through the larger oval bead (body) and slide the bead down to meet the spools (legs).
  5. To make the arms, take one of the four strands of raffia and thread 2 of the smaller oval beads onto it.
  6. Slide the beads to the end of the raffia strand to meet the large oval bead (body).
  7. Tie a knot in the raffia strand at the end of the second arm bead. You will need to tie this knot a few times so that it will be a large enough knot to keep from slipping through the hole in the small oval beads.
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 above for the other arm.
  9. Thread the last two strands of raffia through the round bead (head) and slide the bead to meet the large oval bead (body).
  10. Tie several knots in the raffia strands at the top of the round bead (head) to secure the body.
  11. Trim the ends of the raffia strands so that 1/4" is sticking out beyond the knots to give the appearance of straw coming out of the arms and legs.
  12. Paint your scarecrow.
  13. Using your glue gun, glue a miniature straw hat onto his head.
  14. Take a plain napkin ring, (wood is good) center a fall leaf to the napkin ring and glue in place.
  15. Place a large dot of glue on the leaf with the center of the napkin ring behind it.
  16. Attach the body bead of the scarecrow at the glue dot.

Done!
These scarecrow napkin rings will make your fall table setting something to remember.
