2) Calling All Scarecrow Builders
We hope some of you are thinking about joining in on the Scarecrow competition. Just remember it does not have to be anything special but the more we have the more fun the Scarecrow Hunt will be. Entry fees are entirely voluntary but any money can be donated via our JustGiving page
with all proceeds going to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity
The Scarecrow can be built however you like, but how about building it around a theme such as ‘Scare Off Coronavirus’, ‘Thank You’ or a Rainbows themed Scarecrow?
When building your Scarecrow remember they can come in all shapes and sizes. You can build a traditional scarecrow or you can also opt for farm yard art made from materials around your house, a sculpture of papier-mâché or a hay bale scarecrow art installation.
Consider using a wide variety of materials such as:
Frame/Body – wood cross frame, gardens stakes, bamboo poles, chicken wire, hay bales, old clothes,
Stuffing – straw, insulation, paper, old stockings, old clothing or cloths
Head and face - Plywood, polystyrene, pillow case, old stockings, papier-mâché, hessian. Print out a picture and laminate a well-known face
Hands and feet – gloves, socks, old stockings or tights, straw or soft-toy filling
Hair – wig, raffia, straw, wool, strips of fabric, old mop.
