Scarecrows


Last year we made these guys out of sticks, foam skulls, and some burlap.  I left the bodies outside all year and they just seem to look even better.  The most time consuming part was hit gluing the burlap to the foam skulls and cutting/extending one of the skulls to have a gaping maw.  The bodies were really easy and were throw together with some branches that came down after some high winds.  Just a little bit of floral wire holds them all together. 

We put them up this evening as one of the first decorations out for the year.

  1. These look incredible. The roughness of the weathered burlap and sticks make them so creepy. Love them!

  2. I love a good scary scarecrow! Those add even more scare factors by being skeletons.
