Make a scarecrow

    1. Cut four pieces of wood:
      1- 2″ x 4″ x 28″ (body)
      1- 1″ x 2″ x 18″ (arms)
      2- 2″ x 3″ x 14″ (base pieces)Make a scarecrow to deck out your porch for fall! It’s easy with this step by step tutorial.
    2. Build the base by centering one of the 2″ x 3″ base pieces at the base of the 4″ board (body) and attach with two screws or nails.

    3. Attach the other 2″ x 3″ piece on the back of the base of the 4″ board.Make a scarecrow to deck out your porch for fall! It’s easy with this step by step tutorial.

    4. Slide the leg of jeans on the vertical board. It only needs to go about halfway up the board so if it’s way too long, trim the extra off. Leave the hemmed end for the bottom and extra for bagging it out a bit.

    5. To find a good place for the face and the arm board, slide the shirt on the board and put the hat on the head. Adjust things until you like how they look.
