Step 1 – Painting

First you will grab your base color to coat your bowling pin. Here i went with the Antique White Apple Barrel Paint. Coated with at least 2 coats.

Step 2 – Create the Hat

Once paint is dry, grab your 12 inch jute squares. Drape it over the top of the paper mache bowling pin. Secure it in place with a rubber band.

You may need to trim a couple corners. In the front, i folded one of the corners up in the rubber band to add a little more character to the hat.

Step 3 – Add the face

Before painting on the face, i came in with a pencil to help me decide and get a temple of what i am aiming for.

Then you come in and paint in the face once you got the correct face look you were going for. Don’t forget to add those cute little stitchings around the nose and the month.

Step 4 – Add the Accessories

Select your preferred autumn ribbon. For this project, I opted for the Green Gingham Check Wired Ribbon. I carefully wound it around the neck of the bowling pin and secured it in position using hot glue. Then, I repurposed a sunflower pick by removing the floral heads and leaves. I attached these clippings with hot glue to embellish the straw hat’s side.

Creating a paper mache bowling pin scarecrow is a delightful and imaginative way to celebrate the fall season. Not only is it a fantastic DIY project, but it also allows you to recycle and repurpose items you might have lying around. Plus, it’s a great way to spend quality time with family and friends. Get ready to enjoy the fall festivities with your unique, handcrafted scarecrow guarding your home in style!

Things you’ll need:
1 –7″ Round Paper Mache Box
1 –Mod Podge Hard Coat
3 package of1/4″ Unfinished Wood Dowel Rods
1 – FolkArt Home Decor White Adirondack Chalk Paint
Glue Gun and Glue sticks

Let’s grab your supplies, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!

Step 1 – Apply the Paint

To start, i grabbed the paint color of my choice and paint the paper mache box. Here i went with that white chalk paint. This allowed the paint to not be so shinny and more of the matte color. Apply 2 coats and let dry completely.

Now it may seem flimsy after painting, but after it dries completely, it will because hard again.

Step 2- Seal the paint

I came in with the Mod podge hard coat to seal the paint and the paper mache box itself.

Step 3 – Creating the Organizer

Once we got to this step, you had to figure out how high you want the organizer to be. I left the dowel rods in their neutral state.

I was able to find that my protein container worked great for the height and gave a nice flat surface on the bottom and top. About 8.5 inches high.

Once you have it leveled and even, start by hot gluing 3 dowel rods on each side. Use the Q-tip to help with the spacing between each rod.

* Now if you want to add more security to the dowel rods, apply a dot of gorilla glue on the surface of the dowel rod and then hot glue to allow it to hold while gorilla glue dries.

Once the 3 dowel rods on each side are completely dry, slowly remove the container out. If this is not removed at the beginning, then you might run into some issues later on trying to get it out.

Step 4 – Finishing the structure

Once Container is moved out and the side dowel rods are still in tack. Here is where you will finish the structure. Gluing all the dowel rods in place! Remember to use the Q-tip to help keep the same spacing between all rods.

Once all are in place and dried, you are ready to start using the organizer. Such a fun little projects that provides much character created by your own hands!! How beautiful did it turn out!!!
