If you have a murder of crows invading your front yard or you want to add a bit of fright for the kiddies on Halloween night, then the perfect Scarecrow display will do the trick, for scaring those treaters.
A simple poles with cross beam design provides the support, clothes from a thrift store or your old jeans that don’t fit can be the start of a very fun and cheep display. I stuff my old clothes with newspaper and take safety pins (around the belt line) to secure the pants and the shirt to keep the pants on and the shirt from letting out the newspaper stuffing.
The stuffing is up to you… how much or how little is a way to make your scarecrow who you want it to be.
I use a support that anchors the base to a fence and a spike that is sunk into the ground for added stability.
Add a pumpkin head, and some lighting, a hat or even a few strategically placed black birds or an owl and you are all set!
