Scarecrow Competition Rules
You could enter either as a group or as an individual with two class options available Traditional and Open. There are no age limitations!
Traditional - These Scarecrows will be typically old-fashioned figures constructed from throw-aways from the farm such as clothing, hay, stuffing, burlap, farm implements, or farm produce (corn husks, vegetables, pumpkins, etc.)
Open – Themed Scarecrows such as Indigenous, Show, Famous People, Jobs, Funny, Scary, Australiana, Environmental
How to make a Scarecrow
Idea: Use a mop or broom as the frame, turn it upside down and the mop or broom head can become the Scarecrows head!
Clothes - Arms - Legs
Place clothes over the frame. Stuff the arms and legs with straw, old material or newspaper. If using trousers put one of the legs through the frame and secure, leave the other leg outside the frame and use stuffing to form the shape. Make sure that you securely tie up the ends of the arms and legs.
Idea: If you like to get your hands dirty use papier-mâché to make the head.
Idea: If using straw or lavender push this into the arms and legs of the clothes, allowing the straw or lavender to stick out to make the hands and feet. Use string or twine around the end of the sleeves to keep the straw in place.
How to Enter
Entries for the 2017 Smithfield Shopping Centre Scarecrow Competition will open in Apirl 2017!
