I first began making these scarecrows 20 years ago. I got the idea from a Family Fun Magazine Halloween/Fall edition. It became a yearly tradition to make for their classes sometime in September or early October. I tried to space them out from Halloween so that they would be special. Now that my kids are grown, I thought I would share this idea with all of you Hometalkers. You can make these from the Dollar Store candies and get the raffia there too. I like to use box candy for the body and my Dollar Store didn’t carry this so I went elsewhere for some of my candy. You can can make a bunch of scarecrows for $5 using just Dollar Store candy.
Materials I used for this project:
Various Candies (Dollar Tree)
Raffia (Dollar Tree)
Nerds and Peanut Butter Taffy (Walmart)
