Sneak Peek of the Scarecrow

Who knew I could get the sun to rise in my living room just by adding a scarecrow. More pictures to come.

A little later...

I've posted some quick shots of him all lit up. I'll be sure to take some nicer photographs on Saturday or Sunday, but I wanted to give you a sense of what he looks like.

He isn't exactly as I imagined. He needs some cooler clothes and a few adjustments, but he'll do for this year. The bonus is I can take him completely apart for storage.

His stand is an actual tree trunk (a deceased tree we pulled from the ground). His eyes are lit with LED. I weaved pieces of wood for the eyes, and whittled his teeth.

For all the images posted below (with the exception of the one that just shows the base), you can click on the image to see a bigger picture.

I hope you like him. He's my first scarecrow, so I'm pretty happy with him. I'd like to build a whole army of them one day.

Yetch had made a comment to me about the fact that the crows weren't being scared off. I pointed out it isn't because he isn't doing his job, but because he's not concerned with such things. In fact, he draws vermin to him.
