DIY Giant Pumpkin Head Scarecrow

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Like legitly. So much so that my first (and only so far) wedding was on Halloween. I know. Don't judge me. :) As a little girl, I loved the spooky magic of the holiday...dressing up as anyone or thing I wanted...the freedom of trick-or-treating with friends...and CANDY! As a full-grown adult I still love the mystical vibe of Halloween. Still adore parties, dressing up, and witchy magic! When we bought our home, my boyfriend and I decided to go all out and try a DIY giant "headless horseman" style scarecrow for our yard. See how we did it!

Sustainability notes: 1)Try to get used supplies where you can - we use places like Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity. 2)Plan to use your giant scarecrow for many years. We are on year two. Wild Washington rain and wind - our handsome pumpkin head is still going strong! :)

  • I was going to do a modified paper mache head, but we live in WA and it’s 90% rain in the fall, so we used a prefab one. You really want the largest head possible. I’ve seen some at Home Depot and even Target. I usually “haunt” thrift shops and GoodWill pre Halloween for great thrifts that are better for the planet! Give it a try! :)

  • How did you make the head? Or where did you buy it?
