Homemade Halloween Scarecrow Costume 12

This is the scarecrow costume we made for our three year old son.

We brought some raffia and thick white cord from the hobby shop, an old shirt and jeans, and an old straw hat from the thrift shop. Cost maybe $10 altogether.

We found some old coloured fabric around the house and cut them into squares for the patches.
Then we glued the raffia to the squares, making sure that some raffia was sticking out over the edges.

We sewed the squares to the shirt and jeans.
And we glued some raffia to the sleeves at the wrists.

We glued more raffia to the hat, and unraveled the straw at the edge of the hat as well.
Also some small pieces of white cord (or rope) which were tied around the wrists and the waist (not too tight).

And that's it.

All we had left to do was makeup and this is optional. White grease paint for the face, red grease paint for the cheeks and black for the nose.

Our son was the hit of the night, he got a TON of candy and everyone said he was so cute.

I am a frugal mother who was not paying big bucks for a "wear it once" costume for my 10 month old son. I decided to do a scarecrow costume because I knew I could do it in such a way that he was (1) warm and (2) comfortable and (3) could be strapped into his car seat with no big hassle.

I went to the thrift store and for less than $1.00 got two sweatshirts, a pair of old jeans and a straw hat. I cut the first sweatshirt with a fringe at the bottom and wrists and used the second as patches which I sewed on (and I am NOT a sewer). I used raffia as a belt and at the wrists for effect. Put on the hat and there ya go. Simple, easy and cheap! And very, very cute!

I love your creativeness! I'm taking your ideas and making my 11 month old a scarecrow for this Halloween. I agree, it's comfortable and warm for a little one.

I just used a sweat suit (it's warm). Felt for the patches and markers to draw the stitches. I cut the cuffs off of the shirt and leave the cuffs on the pants (again for warmth). At the wrists and ankles I tied raffia (around the fabric it's itchy).

The hat is a basket for potted plants. You can get them at the florist. I just frayed the edges and pinned up the front. I used a flower but I think a big button would be cute too. I cut the bottom off the shirt too so it hangs. At the waist I tied a frayed rope. It's cold here in Wyoming at Halloween so I always try to
make the costumes big enough to wear a coat under.

This one works great for that. No sewing needed with this one at all just a glue gun works great.
