MAKE A ZOMBIE SCARECROW!
First, take the bamboo skewers, (with the pointed end going into the body) and slide one in each arm of the scarecrow, and push the pointed end into the body of the scarecrow, to make the arms stretch out, like a zombie pose. Then break off the end of the skewer, so it's the same length as the scarecrows straw hands. (Save the broken pieces, if you want to make a scary scarecrow)
Next, take the scarecrow and cut a few slices in the face and body, with an exacto knife. Then in the slices, dab with the red acrylic paint, making some smears and splatter. Be sure to add some splatter to the clothes and straw hands as well, to add to the effect.
Then, using the black acrylic paint, make scars and smears on the face of the scarecrow, and some splatter on the clothes, as well.
You can make him as gory or as cute as you want. I of course.... went for the creepy factor, and added the ends from the broken bamboo skewers, in the heart and the head..... just for effect!
How cute is this guy?
