Yes, We've finally got our ole friend out for the season. This has been our project for today.
Here's what we started with.
My old bibs, flannel shirt, and my hat I thought
I had to have but have never worn.
Okay....Let's wear it.
I'm terribly cheap and hate to waste money if I have something
that can work but I did purchase some burlap for the head.
Last year we used an ole panty hose for the head.
I think the burlap will work a little better.
We tied knots in the legs of the pants and arm of the shirt.
We've decided to stuff it with pine cones. I know that sounds
a little crazy but last year we stuffed with straw and when it
rained everything was really slouchy. This time we'll be stiff
We also just safety pinned most of everything together. We thought he'd
be on a stick but it didn't work out so we used a cinder block and set him
on a stump.
All in all, we liked the way he turned out. Jack parked his John Deere
wagon with some corn stalks and a pumpkin next to him. Now the only
thing to figure out is what's his name. Jack wanted him to be called
Jack. Alisha wanted her to be called Becky. I keep calling him Fred
since that was his name last year.
Fred was a little on the skinny side.
He's put on a little weight this year.
Jud don't know what to think.
There you go, one more do-it yourself,
go by the seat of your pants
