How to assemble:

  1. I painted 1 pot blue, 1 pot blue & pumpkin orange & 1 pot very light pink (for face).
  2. I drew in the face features & used buttons for eyes(which I had painted black, since I didn’t have black buttons!)
  3. The arms are painted pumpkin orange, using 3-1 1/2″ pots.
  4. I strung 3 each side and fastened together inside the middle pot.
  5. Using a hot glue gun, glue straw or raffia, to inside of bottom arms.
  6. Glue bottom 2 pots together.
  7. Glue straw around neck & glue on head. Using glue gun, add straw to top of head pot & also to straw hat. Glue on hat & more straw around base, which is a clay 4 1/3″ saucer, painted pumpkin orange or any color of choice.
