Scarecrow Halloween Tutorial

We spent two days creating, filming, shooting and editing our Scarecrow look for Halloween. It was so much fun; here’s how we did it…



To make the outfit Courtney found an old, striped shirt (a plaid shirt would work as well) and some old, blue jeans. I cut off the collar of the shirt because Courtney made a collar out of the hessian fabric by holding one strand and scrunching up the fabric around it. Then added some fake blood and black cream face paint for a scary touch.

I sewed on a few patches of hessian fabric to match the face mask as well as some scraps of fabric to create an aged scarecrow look. I also stuck on some pieces of hay with liquid latex on the jeans to look like the scarecrows stuffing. I put fake blood on the shirt to make it extra spooky.

To finish off we added a pair of gloves and two wrist cuffs, made the same way as the collar, to cover up the rest of the arms. Courtney used a piece of rope for a belt around the shirt and wore black boots.


To create the mask I used hessian fabric, I cut two pieces for my eyes and one for my mouth, cutting out slots where my eyes and mouth are. Before sticking them down, I coloured my eyes and mouth with black face paint and set that with black eye shadow. I used liquid latex to stick the hessian pieces to by face, making sure not to get the latex on my eye brows. I then picked out 3 strands from the fabric to plait, to create thicker strands which I used to create stitches, connecting the patches together and giving the effect of a stitched together mouth. After sticking everything down, I dirtied up the face with black and brown paint, then added artificial blood for extra effect.
