Supplies You Will Need To Make a Scarecrow Coaster

Directions on How to Make a Scarecrow Coaster:

Step 1: A little dusting

I used copper pigment powder and dusted the mold.

Step 2: A little copper and gold  

I mixed one ounce of resin and mixed in copper and gold pigment powder.  I am using a fast curing resin, that cures white.  You can use a clear drying resin and add pigments as well, but you need to adjust the color, to your liking.


Step 3: Pour that resiny goodness!  

I poured it into the mold and let it cure.  Because I used a resin that cures white, it will become much lighter!


Step 4: Now let’s see how to make a scarecrow face!

Once cured, I laid the button eyes on the coaster, for placement purposes and then painted the nose.


Step 5: A little stitchery

I painted the mouth.

Step 6: Button eyes  

I glued on the eyes.


Step 7: The scarecrow coaster is coming together  

I mixed one ounce of resin and poured it into the mold, popped the bubbles, and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.


Step 8: Take the scarecrow coaster out of the mold  

Once cured, I pulled it out of the mold. This is what the back looked like.


Step 9: A little felt for the scarecrow hat

Cut two identical triangles out of brown felt.


Step 10: A simple triangle 

Use a glue gun and put glue on the edge of the triangle.


Step 11: A haircut 

Cut small pieces of raffia.


Step 12: The scarecrow coaster is coming together 

Glue the pieces to the corners of the hat.

Step 13: One more seam  

Glue the open edge together.


Step 14: Little patches  

Glue small pieces of orange rectangle felt.


Step 15: Raffia accent 

Glue on a piece of raffia.


Step 16: Put the scarecrow hat on  

The hat is snug enough, but can still be removed.


That’s it!  Look at that cute scarecrow! Now you know how to make a scarecrow coaster!


Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
