Looking for an EASY and UNIQUE homemade front door wreath for FALL? 🍁🍂 Grab a straw hat and make this simple Scarecrow Wreath using some festive Fall embellishments and your creativity! I love that this wreath can be displayed for both Halloween and Thanksgiving!


DIY Scarecrow Wreath From Hat

Supplies Needed:

Large Brim Straw Hat
Faux Fall Leaves, Pumpkins, etc.
Straw Raffia (for Hair)
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Buttons for Eyes
Felt for Nose & Mouth
Decorative Ribbon
Floral Wire or Bread Twist Ties


Unravel raffia and gather into equal lengths. Trim ends if you need to. Secure raffia in the middle with floral wire or a twist tie. Decide which side of the hat will be the top and place the raffia over to top of the crown. Fold and glue rim down over the raffia. Glue flowers and embellishments on the top of hat. Glue face details. Finally, glue ribbon and a flower detail to the bottom of hat. Hang on your door to enjoy this FALL!  😃



  • I decided to use a floppy beach straw hat and picked it up on clearance this week for almost FREE with a $10 Kohl’s reward. You could use a more rustic looking one if desired.
  • The raffia I used was from Dollar Tree, and my faux flowers and pumpkin are from Walmart.
  • You could always improvise with the face and use what you have on hand at home.

This is SO cute on my front door!! What a FUN and FRUGAL way to add a touch of Fall to the entryway!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
