Scarecrows: A Twist on a Tradition

A creative gardener's prize-winning scarecrows transform her garden in fall. Making one of her easy scarecrows is a fun project: try it with a friend or with kids.

Kim Stone, who lives in Kansas City, Missouri, finds inspiration for her scarecrows in her own life. We asked Kim to demonstrate her technique, and she created "Fern", a gardening scarecrow with a festive hairdo of asparagus ferns. This project is easier with extra hands, so Kim asked her twin sister, Karen Howerton, to help put the scarecrow together. Their kids helped with her outfit. Follow our instructions to make your own scarecrow and some good garden memories.
