Scroll down to see one way to make a scarecrow - let's make it a bumper year!:

1     Gather up the clothes you want to dress your scarecrow in.

2     You will need:

- two poles or lengths of wood - one shorter than the other 

- and an 'all in one'  disposable overall with a hood. 

(These are available from Amazon, Poundland or Do it Yourself  stores)

3     Stuff the overall with straw / hay / old carrier bags / empty plastic bottles / shredded paper / old  rags.  Anything to fill it out.

4     Thread the pole down the body of the overall and down one leg. 

5     Thread the shorter pole across the arms - or one arm, whichever you prefer.

6     Stuff an old pillow case for the head and fasten it to the top of the pole and inside the hood of the overalls.     

7     Using 'Sharpie' type pens, mark eyes, nose, mouth etc on the pillow case to make a face.

8    You are now ready to add hair and then dress your scarecrow

 however you want.

9     When you have finished, fasten your scarecrow to a tree or fence

 where it does not interfere with neighbours or traffic and cannot blow away.
