That's right. We built a flippin scarecrow in our dorm room. We couldn't just settle for a string of lights across the doorframe. Needless to say, our neighbors were not very appreciative.
I painted the cornfield with acrylic. It took about 30 hours. We used a black sheet and fitted sheet as the canvas. Shirt and pants from Goodwill, burlap sack from a feed store. The whole thing cost about 40 bucks or less. Do enjoy.
