6 Steps for Making a $20 Scarecrow

Fall is FINALLY in the air here in Phoenix.

The weather has cooled off a bit, especially in the mornings and evenings.  The windows are open.  The flavor of pumpkin is in darn-near everything I’m making these days.  It is magical and easily my favorite time of year.

So, when I had the idea to make a scarecrow for our front-yard corn patch, it seemed like a perfect addition to the fall atmosphere.  I enlisted the help of my husband (who is much more handy with power tools than I am) and made a trip to Goodwill for some scarecrow “duds.”  Check out how we did it below.

pumpkin for head
clothes (including overalls – http://amzn.to/19Oz3B8 or suspenders – http://amzn.to/199cOe8 – I got them all at Goodwill for really cheap)
1 – 2×4 (ripped in half)

Isn’t he cute?  We’ve already had quite a few compliments.  I love having an “unconventional” front yard.  Would you put a scarecrow in your front yard?
