Cornfields are end of summer and into fall. They represent a harvest that grew a country, utilized for a wide variety of foods and even fuels. But, to most, the cornfield is a place to get lost, a maze, rows with no sense of direction. And, the best of them are guarded by silent sentinels - scarecrows!
Making scarecrows is a creative endeavor and placing one outside, a sign of bravery, as their silhouettes at nighttime can be quite sinister.
Utilizing styrofoam heads, Elmer's glue, and burlap, I enjoyed making a few scarecrow heads with themes.
