Cute Pumpkin/Scarecrow Centerpiece

Use a wavy-edge blade to cut your pumpkin paper strips, then attach them to a jar or small container.  I decorated the pumpkin with "curly hair" made from patterned paper, ribbon, and brads for the eyes.

I really think the scarecrow really "finishes" the project...  yes, I did machine sew his "clothes" with patterned paper and then stuffed him with raffia ... LOL!

I used Upsy Daisy Designs "Home Sweet Home" papers for this project (you can also see it on their blog)!
