Cool Scarecrow Costume

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!
