    You can also skip the candy. Use a gatorade bottle or similar. Add some dried beans inside for weight. Cover with your scraps and then add the scarecrow head- a new family heirloom. Add twig arms by cutting an X where the arms should go, insert, & glue. A 6th grade art favorite for years!

    Added a little sister. Just turn the head upside down, add a bow, earrings! A 6" circle stitched into a yo yo is the collar. I'm soaking a salsa jar for the body- to fill with candy kisses!

    Do you think she needs eyelashes?
