Fierce defenders of gardens everywhere, today’s design is sure to attract people with its cuteness while frightening all the birds away. Complete with interchangeable hats, outfits, and even heads, these die cut scarecrows are a perfect project for fall!
These days, you can find a pre-made scarecrow in just about any grocery store, but I actually do remember making a true DIY scarecrow with my grandpa each year! I don’t know how many people do this anymore, but it was really fun. We would basically just get a couple of old broomsticks, make a cross, hang some of Grandpa’s old, worn out clothes on it, and stuff it.
My grandpa had a large garden, and so it was all very picturesque when we’d put the scarecrow in the middle of it all. I’m not sure if it actually scared any birds away, but it was sure fun to make!
These scarecrows don’t take nearly as many materials in order to assemble, but they are still quite fun to put together. And, you can mix and match their clothing to make each one unique!
I even included a pumpkin head as an option because my sons are obsessed with the Curious George Halloween movie. They’ve watched it about a thousand times…and not just during the fall season either—true fans!
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fall freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting these adorable die cut scarecrows together! And thank you to my patrons who voted for this project. It was super fun to create, and I hope you like it!
