Funny Scarecrows

Here is a clever scarecrow idea from John Kerry: Scarecrow in a Manhole! John says, 'There is no hole - just a painted wooden frame around his waist'! This display was in the Village Competition at Bratton Clovelly, Devon, UK.

John Kerry also sent in this wonderful Gardener Scarecrow from the Bratton Clovelly competition in UK. John says, 'He had passing drivers stopping to help him'!!

Here is a terrific scarecrow display by Haydn and Karen Williams and boys from Farlam Parish in UK. It seems that there is a bit of a problem with moles in Farlam, captured beautifully by this funny display! Photograph courtesy of Hugh Beesely.

The following hilarious display called 'Hijacked Henry' was made by Mike Pewtherer. The display won at the Hawthorne Valley Fall Festival in Harlemville, New York in 2009!

Stephen DeFlorio of Sudbury, Massachusetts, USA, says that we all need to lighten up life! 'Crows are fun to make and explore!' He has sent in the following photos of three delightful scarecrows that were not made for any scarecrow festival -- they just made his family and staff members laugh.
