As soon as we saw the scarecrows at our Botanical Gardens, both the girls and I knew we had to make our own...
Materials - all repurposed
Wooden stake and stick
Burlap rice bag
Old clothes - trousers and top
Hat (with elastic to keep wig on)
Plastic bags (I'm not proud that I have these, but somethimes I forget to take my cloth ones)
Step 1: Use a wooden stake for the vertical support and tie and small stick on horizontally for the arms.
Step 2: For the head - turn a burlap rice bag inside out, cut off zipper, and fill with plastic grocery bags.
Step 3: Dress scarecrow with shirt and attach stuffed rice-bag head with string.
Step 4: To hold trousers up - make suspenders by attaching string to belt loops.
Step 5: Stuff trousers with plastic bags and tie the ankles with string.
