The scarecrow is a classic American decoy used by farmers to scare the birds and crows from disturbing and feeding on their crops. It’s also a popular fictional character from “The Wizard of Oz.” However, best of all, it makes for a creative, easy to make Halloween costume idea for all ages. The scarecrow costume is all about adding authentic details and a little bit of creativity.
Here’s what you’ll all need to create this Scarecrow Halloween costume:
- Yellow and Orange Grease Paint
- Black Eyeliner Pencil
- Orange Hued Lipstick
- What to wear?
- Your favorite flannel
- A bright cami
- Destructed Jeans
- Straw Hat
The make-up for this look is super easy and can be made to look sweet or scary. Start with covering the face in yellow grease paint. Then add in the black eyeliner to add in thickened, exaggerated lashes, and stitching to the lip line. Add touches of orange grease paint to the checks, and top off with an orange-hued lipstick.
To outfit yourself as the perfect Halloween scarecrow, start with a bright hued cami and layer with your favorite flannel. Add a great pair of destructed jeans, and finish off with a straw hat. It’s super easy to create a cute scarecrow and you’ll be able to wear your favorite flannel again throughout the fall season.
