I got a giant craft pumpkin from Michaels for $37. Suprise! It was solid foam! We cut holes into the eyes and mouth so that I can place LED flicker candles inside. There is an iron post about 12 feet tall (plus an extra 18 inches in the ground) with a PVC cross bar for the arms. I need to collect twigs and corn stalks, tie them down with twine maybe. Then dress the scarecrow and place him in the ground.
