Welcome to Cloches & Lavender Halloween will be here before we know it so I’m sharing how to make a DIY scarecrow for fall.
Before making the scarecrow, I took the time to decide the look I was trying to achieve.
I immediately knew I wasn’t looking to make a DIY scarecrow for fall looking as though it should be in a flower garden. I also didn’t need one scaring the crows from eating crops.
DIY Fall Scarecrow Begins With Adding Lace To The Overalls
So, what am I looking for as my design of my DIY scarecrow? For example, after thinking about the look I decided to purchase inexpensive overalls.
Afterward, I began adding lace to them. Making the lace become an accent on the overalls on how to make a DIY scarecrow is perfect for our home.
In fact, adding lace to this scarecrow makes it well suited for our French Country home. Besides, who will not enjoy seeing an elegant scarecrow on the front porch?
First, I gathered my overalls, wide and medium lace ribbon and glue gun needed for my DIY scarecrow. In the meantime, while my glue is heating, I began to get the size of my first ribbon.
