DIY Fall Scarecrow Hat Centerpiece For Your Table:

  • Begin by attaching the cone to the grapevine wreath (base). I used 4 zip ties to attach.
  • Next, roll out the first 10 inch mesh and cut it in 30 inch lengths. Then cut the burgundy 10 in mesh and frayed edge mesh into 12 inch lengths.
  • To create poofs with the mesh, take a piece of the 30 inch length mesh and ruffle it up like a bow tie (see video below for details). Place it in the Bowdabra (optional) and add raffia over it (or you can hold it in your hand).
  • Attach the mesh and raffia together with florist wire in the center.
  • Add to the grapevine wreath by pushing the wire through the grapevine. Trim any extra wire.
  • Continue adding the mesh poofs all the way around. Note: I alternated colors.
  • To give the arrangement a focal point, make a bow with a variety of ribbons. Note: Check out the video below for detailed bow instructions and more information about how to choose the right ribbon.

  • Attach the bow to the hat by inserting the wire through the grapevine cone about 3-4 inches above the wreath base and twist underneath. Trim away any extra wire. Take time to spread out all of the bow loops and ensure they are laying the way you want.
  • Optional step – bend the top of the cone just a bit to give the “hat” some character.
  • Begin adding the small pumpkins on stems to the arrangement. Place everything first before gluing! I added the pumpkins between the bow and the cone.
  • Next add in some of the leaves. The stems can be inserted at an angle into the grapevine and hot glued for extra adhesion. Continue adding until you’re happy with how full the arrangement is. Note: You don’t want to completely cover the arrangement – you want to be able to tell it is a hat.
  • Lastly, I added some wispy fall grasses and stems with acorns to add texture.
