Homespun Scarecrow Costume

Oh did I have more fun making this costume!

I started with my straw cowboy hat and covered the conchoes with some fabric scraps.

I wore a red flannel shirt and my husband's overalls with some more fabric scraps sewed on.
(Flannel and oversized overalls - talk about a comfy costume!)

I put my hair in pigtails. 

And I stuffed raffia in all  the pockets and taped raffia under the hat and around the cuffs.

A little face paint in red and brown was the finishing touch.
($1 per tube at Wal-mart - the only cost for this costume!)

I slipped on my cowboy boots and was ready to go!

I hope this gives you an idea for a fun and frugal costume! :-)
