I've never been able to successfully craft a crazy creative scarecrow - be it a funny one or a scary one. This year, I've promised myself to give it a real effort to craft a DIY scarecrow to prop up proudly. To get started, I needed some inspiration and you wouldn't believe the Halloween scarecrow ideas I came across while researching some creative scarecrow ideas!
Not wanting to keep them to myself, I'm sharing my top 10 finds here. Some are funny. Some are really funny. And others are totally creepy. Which is your favorite? Mine is obviously the guy above. HA!
