Coffee Can Scarecrow

"Don't put that coffee can into the trash. Grab some craft supplies and turn it into an adorable coffee can scarecrow! Recycle your empty coffee cans into adorable fall decor! I’ll show you how to make my coffee can scarecrow, worthy of a place on your mantel or front porch. Because, recycling! I’ve always loved turning items into something new and fun. You might even have most of the items on hand. Aside from buying the little hat, most crafters will be able to scrounge up buttons, felt, twine, and raffia! "
