Quick Fall Project

A friend of mine sent me a request on facebook to make her a fall yard decoration. It looked simple enough so I agreed to make it for her....a scarecrow.

From my pile of wood I pulled out three boards from the last fencing project we did.

I put supports across the back and painted the bottom part white.

I painted a very simple face and cut another fence piece of wood to make the hat.

Added a little embellishment.

And added a support brace on the back with a hinge.

Since I had the wood sitting around it was a very inexpensive project to do.  It is a little over 5 feet tall. I may make myself one next year if I am not in the middle of numerous projects in the house.
