So, we shop the Salvation Army Thrift Stores and other second hand clothing stores. It takes lot of looking to find the perfect outfits for scarecrows.”Dunn said scarecrows must be dressed in brightly colored attire with the basic overalls for him and a plaid shirt, a straw hat and a bandanna. For the lady, a brightly colored skirt with a petticoat and a blouse, a scarf and a wrap for the cool nights and a hat, with flowers if possible.Dunn said brightly colored clothing scares away the crows and other critters intent on dining on the fall harvest. Dunn said she enjoys the harvest season and dressing the Scarecrows for public display.“I love the fall and everything associated with it,” she said. “I have a scarecrow in my fall garden but, so far, it has not scared way the deer that are feasting on the fruits of the harvest.” Latest Stories Sponsored Content Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
