Create a scarecrow

- by Debra Anchors

Express your style with a scarecrow

With the autumn season upon us, I decided to focus on the scarecrow, a familiar symbol of the fall harvest. Have you ever considered the creative style of the person who created your favorite scarecrow? What is your creative style? Traditional? Ghoulish? 

I hope you will enjoy a few of my favorites – which of these do you prefer?

    1. Hi there! I agree - such a clever idea for a scarecrow. I wish I could outline its construction for you, but I posted it as one of my favorites (and did not create it myself).

      Maybe we could all brainstorm together. I would try using PVC for legs, weighted down with a bag of sand inside the base of each pipe. I think the pumpkins would balance well on those, once a PVC "groove" is carved into the pumpkins, Bubble wrap, wrapped around the PVC, could be used to fill-out the legs.

      Now, what to do for the body? How about it, my creative readers? How would you create the "pumpkin-butt scarecrow"?
