Making a Scarecrow

Today we are going to attempt to make a new scarecrow for the garden. Something a bit like the guy below. I want his head to be one of our lighted jack-o-lanterns.
We had one for years but he fell apart and so I think I want to make a new one to stand in the garden.

Here are a few inspirational photos from the web. So what are you up to today?

Can't wait to see how your man turns out! The pics you shared are fabulous! Nothing planned for me, I've got chili on for lunch. I'll go make some cornbread in just a bit. Have a great Sunday!

I love scarecrows, but have never liked any I created:) I'm sure yours will turn out great.
I have a sore throat today, so not feeling like doing much. I am trying to do a little weeding and will be making an apple crisp later.

What a family fun things to do. It was my MIL 89th bday today so we took her out for lunch.

...wow... what great scarecrows....
I'm looking forward to seeing yours.
I particularly like the tired fellow sitting on the seat with the crows standing all over him...he's too tired to scare them away..hehehe
Have a great day..
Hugs and Blessings

My scarecrow, Betheune, is clothed by friends who work in a thrift store. Right now she has her prom dress on from May. I need to search for a fall ensemble for her as soon as it gets a little cooler here in the piney woods of east Texas.

I love scarecrows, and it's so interesting to see everyone's versions of them. In the nursery we used to have a good time by dressing them up like our boss. He was a good sport about it too.
