Introduction: Pumpkin Patch Scarecrow

Picture of Pumpkin Patch Scarecrow

I made this costume for my 5 year old son Reid.

Step 1: How I Made This Costume

I started off with four key pieces that I bought at the Thrift store, overalls, plaid shirt, brown boots and plastic pumpkin. I made the head out of paper mach, spray paint, burlap and acrylic paint. Gloves where made out of brown felt and fabric stiffener. I disstressed the overalls with black paint, twine stitching, burlap, creepy fabric, and raffia.
