I glued candy bars around the outside of a plastic bowl. I had to hold them in place with rubber bands until it dried. Once it was dried I put the floral foam in the bowl and made flowers with punches. For the center of the punch I took the big eyeballs & made a slit in the back, removed the dot (pupil) and I put various items back into the eyeball. I filled them with brads, jewels, small leaves to embellish with then I glued a wire stem to each flower, covered it with leaves and stuck that into the foam. I made a happy birthday banner using my cricut and made that stand in the middle with two wires. I put a few other things in the base on top of the spanish moss which covers the foam. I was flipping through the oriental trading catty and saw the foam scarecrow and got the idea to use a black bag for the scarecrow. I cut the top of the bag off with scalloped scissors, free handed the hat & beak. I used raffia for the hair and made his scarf and bow with some paper I have had for awhile. I used the same googly eyes that I used for the center of the flowers but left them as eyes this time.....as if you couldn't tell. LOL. Sam's basket slid right in the bag perfectly. Hope she likes it. I will try to get better pictures once she opens it. Tootles!
