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)
wood screws – http://amzn.to/166dNcI
