How to make a scarecrow in 62 fun illustrations

Today’s theme for the day is how to make a scarecrow. When autumn knocks on our doors we want to protect the garden from birds that are interested in cultivated plants and trees. The scarecrow is a nice way that helps us to keep small invaders away but also to make a wonderful decoration. It’s true that the idea of ​​making a scarecrow is a bit nostalgic, but nowadays we talk a lot about recycling and every day we throw away several everyday objects that remain unused – cans, corks, paper or jute bags, wooden slats, pallets and many others. Think about the many possibilities you have to recycle and recreate your unused or old items that you intended to throw away. A few unnecessary sticks, the old shirts and pants that no one will wear anymore, a football left in the attic, a few buttons left in a box and a bit of straw. This is all you need to be able to DIY a classic large scarecrow that will scare off birds and add rustic charm to your garden.

Here is the traditional recipe for making a man out of straw, a little forgotten: The skeleton of the man in straw is made with two sticks with which we form a cross. Then we take the clothes and put them on the construction so that we form the body of the man. The next step is to tie up the shirt and pants and stuff them. The most important thing is to create a scarecrow that will withstand rain and snow. That is, you should use materials that are not afraid of water such as rags, straw and the like for its padding. Don’t forget the silicone gel that is increasingly used for soft toys and pillows. For the creation of the head you have several variations – a tin can, a pillow, a ball, a simple burlap bag or of course a pumpkin. All you need to do is draw a little bit to make the face. All that’s left is to acessorise your modern scarecrow a little bit – put on a hat, boots, scarf, and whatever else you want. Noises and movements are very important to be able to really scare the birds. For this reason we advise you to add some hanging objects that will float in the wind and produce rustling.

But there are still several much easier options to craft a scarecrow. You can do this with just a few small things like flowerpots, burlap bags, hats, and without having to build a body. The scarecrow isn’t just for the garden. It is also a clever decoration for the interior that a few online sites offer.
