Scarecrow Yard Stake

anjabeeNovember 9, 2009

This is just a simple little yard stake that I picked up unpainted at the TS last year for a buck. Thought I'd finally get it painted and put out this year.

Anj,

Your simple little yard stake is darling. Was the pattern on it or did you just come up with all this? That polka dot tie must of taken some time and I really like the little crow sitting on his hand. TFS Punk

He's a cute little guy. He'd look cute poked in a flower pot or planter for sure.

I've been picking up some of these type of preprinted wood items at Michael's when they are in the $1.00 bin so that little GD can paint on them with me. I had been giving her some animals I cut out, but without a design on them, she just paints them "rainbow"! LOL

Anj....reminds me of pictures in a coloring book and all the fun hours spent coloring. All of your color choices are great and really fit together well. He is simply handsom!

Hey ya'll, thanks! Luvs this one is pretty big and it's not preprinted, but more like...what would you call it???...the design is carved into the wood. Hard to get the black outline down in the crack without it looking all jagged. I do have it stuck out in one of my big pots by my front door. For $1 I couldn't pass it up. ha Thanks again everyone.

I don't think he will scare anyone, he is just so darn cute. Usually I am not a fan of anything that has the design carved in, sometimes a bit hard to paint for me but you did a great job.
