Throughout the summer dachasripe berry crop - cherries, strawberries, currants, raspberries, and hard-working gardeners cook them compotes, jams and preserves. But not only do they love to feast on sweet and juicy berries: cunning raid poultry flocks in search of dessert and leave behind only a bare cuttings and debris. Coping with thieves is difficult, so gardeners and think about how to make a scarecrow with his own hands - it is at least partially protect the crop.
A little bit of free time and a little imagination - and a bunch of old things turns into a mysterious lady, the real owner of the infield.
Most often stuffed give a human face, believing that this will frighten birds
For creativity require quite a bit:
- two spade handles of different lengths;
- a large nail, a hammer;
- old clothes;
- two buttons;
- bag stuffed with straw.
Putting stalks crosswise scoring a nail and get the basis for a bogey.
To fit the cross from cuttings shovels, sticks, poles, sticks, narrow slats
Making the head: fills a plastic bag with straw. On top of it stretch the children's tights or pillowcase - turns the head. To sew likelihood eyes - two large buttons, a nose - piece of cloth, lip - terry cloth rag. Fix a head at the upper end of a long stalk.
Then we put on a cross-cutting olddress (skirt) and a jacket - and in front of us is quite nice lady. Of course, a stylish woman lacks accessories - in Panama and romantic scarf she looks much more interesting.
The similarity with the person shown in the design of the face and in the choice of clothes

Thus, the order of work. First of all, we make out the head. To face contour was smooth, put on a thick piece of light material (burlap) basin or a large dish, encircle it. Cut two identical circle for the head. One of them - a person. Pencils denote the place where will be the eyes, nose, mouth.
Eyes light fabric, mouth and nose are more visible
Roth embroider stitching using thickwoolen thread. His eyes cut out of dark fabric and sew, do not forget to issue eyelashes. Ears and nose do the color of a person - so it will be more natural. Sew the two circles, synthetic padding stuffing, sew the hair (some thick woolen threads) - the head is ready.
For the eyes, you can use pieces of cloth, felt, buttons, caps
The required bar - a hat made out of a bag.

How to make a scarecrow, so that it rustled,It shone and frightened all who encroach on the beds of strawberries? Very simply - using plastic bottles. Options for combination of plastic containers of different sizes a lot, consider one of them.
- plastic bottles of different color and size;
- elastic fixation;
- lids from bottles;
- awl, knife, scissors, stapler.
Using plastic bottles of different colors, you can make completely different stuffed
We expect a large number of containers for assemblyhands and feet, for example, two pieces on each leg, 1 - on foot. The bottoms and lids pierce holes through which extend a gum. End of gum will be attached to the torso.
Torso - old tank, plastic too. To this wire attached multicolored cap - buttons. For head will fit 5-liter cans of water. By "face" fasten your eyes, nose, mouth, using a stapler. As the limbs, the head is attached to the body by means of elastic bands. More noise - less birds. So we do "hands-free" skirt of the caps. Wonder scarecrow ready.
