If you need ideas for making scarecrows this Halloween, peruse my pictures, which include tips on making body parts for your straw man. You'll also learn about scarecrow hats and clothes, plus ways to support your creation.
Some of these pictures were shot in Seneca Falls, NY, a town in the Finger Lakes region. Seneca Falls decorates its downtown in fall using a scarecrow theme. Besides beautifying a downtown for residents and visitors alike, such decor themes can be a source for ideas for making scarecrows -- to use in your own yard.
Incidentally, Seneca Falls is thought by many to have been the inspiration for "Bedford Falls" in the Christmas classic, It's a Wonderful Life (1947), with Jimmy Stewart. While the town's associations with the Christmas holiday may, consequently, be foremost in one's mind, its garden scarecrow decorations work wonderfully well for Halloween.
Pictures in the present gallery focus on materials used in putting together your creation; when you're ready to actually create one, use my tips on how to make a scarecrow.
