    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?

    Wow, these are really cute. I'm thinking sugar free candy or mints in baby food jars, for some seniors

    My boys ages 6, 8, and 9 have used a similar technique with a gatorade bottle and dried beans. They make snowman paper weights each year for their teachers. A new sock over the gatorade bottle, a triangle of felt for the hat, google eyes, and pipecleaners glued on for nose and arms. Very easy to do and the kids love to pick the colors of felt for the hats and scarves as well as twisting the pipe cleaners. Never thought about it as a fall activity before....

    This is great!
