We have been asked for ideas on how to make a scarecrow so many times that we have put together our very own kit.
Each kit includes:
- 2 recycled coffee bean sacks
- 1 broom handle
- 2 bamboo canes
- 1 ball orange garden string
- 2 needles
- 1 marker pen
- 1 packet of seeds
and beautifully illustrated instructions.
The hat is not included, so please visit a charity shop or rummage through your drawers for an old hat, scarf or any other accessories you would like to adorn your scarecrow with.
The kit makes a scarecrow about 1m tall. Please take a look at our scarecrow photo gallery for more ideas for scarecrows.
Not suitable for children under 3 years old (although they will no doubt admire the result!). And please see the video below to see Leroy making a scarecrow.
