Bill the scarecrow

Our version of the "Dingle dangle scarecrow" made from old clothes and sheet, old curtain rails for arms and legs, packaging material and bags. The only new item was the string for holding everything together. The name, Bill, was chosen by the children but from its origins our scarecrow has no connection with the financial variety.

The children, and some visiting friends, made the face.

The old clothes were arranged
 and then re-arranged.
We stuffed "Bill" with more old clothes and packaging material and added some boots.
All ready for the garden.
Guarding the blackcurrants.
I keep looking up the garden and thinking that there is someone there-hope the birds think the same.
