This Diy scarecrow was created from a picture that a friend recently sent to me asking if I could make a large version of the scarecrow for her.
He turned out so adorable that I wanted to share with you how I made my diy scarecrow.
Take the 17″ piece of trim and glue it down at an angle up towards the top of your cedar pickets for the scarecrows hat brim.
Once the glue on the trim for the brim (-; is dry flip over and screw it down.
Then glue down the 10″ onto the back for added support. Staple or screw down as well.
I started out using my magic wood aging solution for the scarecrows face, but it came out way to dark.
So I went back over the face of my diy scarecrow with a light coat of acrylic flesh paint.
Next paint the scarecrows hat dark brown.
Draw the face on your diy scarecrow.
Then paint the face using your acrylic paints.
Make a bow out of burlap.
Then staple the bow onto the hat brim of your diy scarecrow. And that’s it.
Isn’t he adorable?
