Need an easy, modest costume idea? For a total price of $3.56 I made this cute scarecrow costume. I had the flannel shirt, boots and floppy hat so just purchased a roll of raffia ribbon at Michaels with their 40% off coupon. I used the ribbon to make the wristbands, hair pieces and as stuffing. I chose a ripped pair of jeans so I could have some of the stuffing come out of the holes. The makeup was easy and a simple online search pulled up lots of cute ideas.
To make the wristbands, I used a hair tie and cut twelve 18″ pieces of raffia. I folded each piece in half and used the slip-knot tie method shown below:
For the hair pieces, I used the same method but attached to bobby pins. And there you have it, an easy last-minute costume that will get you lots of compliments 🙂
