I know that it's early, but since any items I need buy will have to be worked into my budget, it's better to start early. I do have a few issues/constraints, 1 I live in a rental so nothing that would be permanent/destructive, 2 the outside of the building is very thin would on a metal frame, so hanging anything up is unlikely (see #1 drilling not allowed), and 3 my yard is incredibly windy, those fake tombstones just blow away. Actually last year we made a scarecrow and the wind bent the garden stake it was tied to. On the good side we don't get snow or freezing weather here, but lots of rain. Hopefully someone can help!!

people in my neighborhood sometimes get these half bodies crawling out of their yards... like a head and arms, and they are like staked into the yard and low to the ground so they might not blow away?

saving you're friends is the best gift you could ever give them... Smiley

Use a better stake like a piece of fencing aluminum. or a piece of rebar staked into the ground then tie a nylon string  to the scare crow. From two or three angles.

I rant here and post my House Art Project.Look in the May posts.
