Meet Pearl

We picked the most humid day for this project, but one 16 year-old was willing to help.  Pearl is not fancy, but we didn't dress her for a contest.  Just some thrift store clothing, one of our old aprons (full body, but had to fold it over for a waist apron), an old hat of ours, some scrap material for the head, straw to stuff her, and a few sharpies to give her a face.
Oh, and recycled chicken twine to keep her innards inside.

It will be interesting to see what the dogs do now.  She's leaning just a bit, so I need my strong Hubby to put her in the ground a bit more secure.

It was a fun project and it gave one kiddo something fun to do.  People driving by will have something fun to see as well.

Hi, Pearl! I LOVE scarecrows in the garden but never take the time to put one up. Maybe this is the year for me to do it!

Cute! I love scarecrows :)

Pearl is wonderful! The hat and apron are just the right touch. Well done. :)

Mama Pea, it was fun for a change. Even Hubby liked her, but wanted to dress her up even more - add gloves, a purse and a tag hanging on her hat to call her "Minnie Pearl" ha ha ha!

hoosier girl, we had one a few years back and hadn't put one back up. I thought it was time.

Vicki, I have a stack of old aprons, just waiting for the next scarecrow.
