Make a Wood Scrap Scarecrow ~ Our Fairfield Home & Garden

Have you ever made a scarecrow? Basic tools and limited carpentry skills are all you need to build this simple frame for a fun garden accent. So, what are you waiting for? Get out your saw and power drill and let’s get to work!
Wood Scrap Scarecrow
Scrap lumber was used for the scarecrow’s shoulder section and torso. One 5-foot long garden stake was enough for the upper and lower arms and neck pieces.
Wood Scrap Scarecrow Directions
Screwing the pieces together and attaching the wing nuts at the shoulders and elbows created the scarecrow frame. Make sure to label upper and lower arm pieces before you drill holes for the joints. You can see I missed one! No big deal, her hands will cover that extra hole.

      @ByLightOfMoon ~ Thanks! My husband says I have "visions" - not sure if that is a compliment or not! : )
