2. Tie of raffia bow ends for legs with elastic bands or household string.

3. Force pumpkin head into top small remaining loop of bow, just above the bow clip and create facial features with markers.

4. Cut fabric pieces into shapes needed for shirt and pants, stitch or glue seams to back side of scarecrow. Secure waistband with string and tie a small piece of raffia or string around waist over shirt as shown. Note: To skip this step, just use action figure doll clothing for the small bow scarecrow.
