Fall Decor’ on the Fly!

Yesterday was a fun day. My hubby was off, the weather was nice and we just enjoyed being outside and having fun.

One thing we decided to do was to make a scarecrow. I’ve never made a scarecrow before but I figured it couldn’t be too hard. I gathered some old pants and a shirt from my youngest, my hubby had picked up a bale of hay, so we got to work.

The kids had fun stuffing their pieces of the scarecrow.


I think they got a little carried away though. This scarecrow already needed to go on a diet.


I worked on the head and hubby helped with the building and placement of our newly made friend.


As we sat him on his designated space I realized it was lacking something. My hubby and I both agreed that it needed a sign of some sort. So he got to cutting and nailing and I got to painting. Not my best work but like I said, it was totally on the fly and not planned out at all.


But in the end I think it came out kinda cute.

Now, I think our scarecrow needs a name. Any suggestions?

Have a lovely day my friends and remember to look for the fun in each day.
