How to Make a Summer Garden Scarecrow

Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

Here is a step-by-step tutorial for how to make a garden girl scarecrow. She may not keep critters out but she sure it cute!!

01. Materials

 The first step is to make the scarecrow's frame. You can use any type of wood that you have on hand, but scrap wood from the garage is a great option.

02. Frame

 Cut two pieces of wood to the desired height of the scarecrow.  Attach with a screw about a third of the way down.

Take a cheap tomato cage and flip it upside down and add a tutu. Put the wood scarecrow frame in the center.  Use a hammer to bang it into the ground.


Add Shirt

Dress with a button-down shirt. Put the sleeves over the cross piece of wood to create arms.



 Add a pretty floral apron to go with the garden theme.

Finish off with a hat, garden gloves, & a basket for a whimsical look.
