Pictures of scarecrows can get your creative juices flowing as you attempt to beautify your yard. Sick of displaying the same Halloween scarecrow every year? These pictures will give you fresh ideas for fall decorating themes.
Some of these pictures were shot at the Pick'n Patch in Stanley, NY, which decorated its grounds in the fall of 2011 with a Halloween scarecrow display. Combining scarecrows with wood cut-outs, they created an ensemble inspired by Mother Goose nursery rhymes! Besides drawing customers, such Halloween scarecrow displays are a great source for decorating ideas to use in your own yard.
An array of decorating possibilities resides under the deceivingly simple banner, "scarecrow." You can create Halloween scarecrows to convey a range of emotions, from scary themes to the downright comic. The trick (or treat) often lies in how they're displayed, which gets us into the arena of props; I show examples in my pictures.
