I had an old glow-in-the-dark, baby t-shirt that was begging to be made into a scarecrow.
At first I was planning to use a trick-or-treat bucket for a head, but that didn't last long. I sewed the arms of the t-shirt closed at the shoulder, stuffed the chest and tied the arms behind. I like the way the round neck gave the head little ear/horns.
With a couple pieces of wood, I made a cross. Then I nailed the pants and a shirt to it and stuffed them with pinecones and leaves.
The scarecrow was frightening, because it was so kid-like. The whites of the teeth and eyes showed up well after the porch light went off.
Since I used organic materials to stuff the scarecrow and I nailed the clothing to the wood, I had to throw my creation away after Halloween, but it was fun while it lasted!
