Are birds eating all of the fruits and vegetables in your
garden faster than you can pick them? Solve your problem today—it’s
Build a Scarecrow Day!
Wizard of Oz fans—don't be fooled. Your scarecrows don't need a
brain! Birds and other animals often mistake scarecrows for people. So,
they will likely stay away from the area that a scarecrow “watches
over.” Scarecrows are relatively easy to build. All you need is some
hay, a few articles of clothes, a stick and a hat.
Personalize your scarecrow by giving it pins, buttons and apparel
from your favorite sports teams, schools or bands. This way, if you find
that the intruders aren't frightened by it, you’ll still have a festive
decoration for your garden!
I don't have a garden, but it would be nice to just have one in the backyard anyways.
My great grandma always had a large garden in her back yard area. And she always had a scarecrow all dressed up in the middle of it lol. I just Loved her!!
