1st off...let me tell you I had NO clue what this scarecrow was. With lots of searching, well I got pics, but no real help. So I got my creative mind going! Off to the hospital, goodwill, Menards, Meijers.....you name it I was there looking around thinking, probably looking like a crazy woman. But I was a woman on a mission, to make the costume my 7 yr old wanted.
Mission: Make a kick a$$ Scarecrow costume for my son.
I apologize in advance if I missed a step, but I have lots of pics....I will add things as I see needed. If you have any question please ask, I will try to answer the best I can without actually showing you! :) Thanks for reading & Enjoy!
Step 1: Supplies are here, time to think!
Note to everyone out there on a budget. Dont buy fabric at the craft store, unless its something strange. You will find just about everything you need at goodwill!
Mission: Make costume out of these things...aahhhhhh, I hope I can do this!
*Brown sheet (I was REALLY surprised I actually found a brown sheet at goodwill) ~ any dark brown fabric would do!
*Find any kind of brown colors & fabric to make patches, preferably in VERY large sizes ~ I found girls leggings a couple sizes too big for my 7yr old, this costume called for baggy pants. A girls brown shirt size 10-12. Boys brown shirt 10-12. Ladies small long sleeve shirt in the lightest color I could find that was close to skin color. Ladies suit jacket in a burlap like color. Brown belt, nothing fancy.
* Cream colored yarn. (I only had white, but I used tea to stain it)
*Hardware store things ~ PVC that would fit over my sons hand. Clear tubing, small & 1in. Caps for the end of the 1in. tubing. Silver spay paint. Shoe glue & liquid nails.
*Meijer ~ Chrome duct tape. 6inch glow sticks. Food coloring. Cheap mask.
*Hospital ~ 4 Syringes just the plastic!
*old ace bandage I cut into long scraps
