Is your front yard looking lonely? Are you looking for a new use for that old shirt? Have any extra newspaper laying around? Keep the birds away from your crops while making a spooky statement! Enter the SABA scarecrow contest!
You can build your own scarecrow with materials you have on hand: an old button-down shirt, pants, gloves, plastic milk container, stockings, plastic bag. Old newspaper or leaves can be used as stuffing. Old broomsticks work well as a scarecrow frame, or try sitting your scarecrow down on an old chair or bike. You’re only limited by your own creativity! Your scarecrow can be scary, classic, or have its own theme…maybe you'll make a scarecrow family! Scarecrow-making tutorials can be found online if you need some ideas. Last year’s winner is shared above.
To join the contest, submit your information HERE by midnight, November 5.
Check back here to vote on this year's winners! Winners will receive gift cards to local businesses, plus bragging rights. Can't wait to see your scarecrow!
