Ma and Pa Gourd by Karen and Paul Wilson – Acrylic painted and sculpted gourd heads made into scarecrows for the Midwestern Herb and Garden Show at Mt. Vernon, IL. They were used for a couple of years with the garden display. We enjoyed making them. Polyurethane finish for indoor/outdoor use, straw hair on female. Used broom type handles and wooden bottom to sit flat. Crisscross design for shirt. Fun to make. We love to make scarecrow heads and sell them. We give advice on how to construct the rest of the body to make your own unique scarecrow. Broom handles work great!!!
