To create her, we used:
- bamboo for the vertical pole
- grape vine for the horizontal (arms)
- straw and grape vines bundled with twine for the head and wild hair
- fabric, bells, sparkles, mirror bits, ribbon, beads, etc. from SCRAP and around the house
Use what you have available in your yard and house! On a Nurture-neighborhood garden-ogling tour, my daughter and I met a woman who made her scarecrows with old brooms. We didn't have any old brooms, but we were very inspired, so we basically made one out of straw. The more bells, chimes, and shiny things you add, the more your garden will sparkle and sing and the safer from the birdies it will be.
