2015 THIRD PLACE TIE: “Daphne & Her Dancing Crows” by Dance Factory AND “Burlap Gumby” by Rebecca J. Jutz.
Start thinking about your scarecrow design now! Lots of scarecrows are wanted in downtown Delavan! Anyone can make a scarecrow; they’re easy to make! Don’t think you can make a scarecrow? Here are some simple instructions to help you with your creation. To make a scarecrow, take two strong sticks, one about six feet long and one about two feet long and nail the short one to the long one to form a cross. Stuff an old skirt and blouse or a pair of overalls or jeans with just about anything and tie them to the two sticks that form the cross. For the head use whatever you want- a stuffed piece of material, a jug, a pot, a ball… let your imagination run wild! You will want to anchor the head to the top of the stick frame with a small nail or tack. Draw a face on it with markers or paint, or leave it plain….again be creative and do whatever you want.
Now that you have the basic scarecrow, you can add any details you would like…perhaps a hat, a jacket, gloves, boots, hair, etc. For motion you can add streamers, a scarf, a flag, or a stick. Create noise by hanging a tin can with pebbles in it from the scarecrows hand. Stand back and enjoy your new creation….the object of the event is to have fun, so have fun creating your scarecrow and showcase it downtown Delavan! Stop in or call Remember When (728-8670) for a Scarecrow Application, or go to discoverdelavan.com and print your own off! ScarecrowApplication16
