It’s Halloween Crafting time! I’ve been crafting a storm lately with some creepy Halloween decor! Earlier, I shared the Scary Movie Halloween Party I created for my teenage boys and today I’m excited to share a simple tutorial for a DIY Scarecrow Mask Prop with you!

DIY Scarecrow Mask Prop
I grew up watching the classic Horror movies and now that my oldest son is 18, we can watch some of the scary movies together. So when he suggested a Scary Movie Halloween Party, I jumped at the chance of creating a Creepy Scarecrow Prop for our party! I’m not sure which “character” this prop is supposed to be, but it’s sure creepy!
What you will need:
- Foam Head Form
- Mod Podge
- Black Paint
- Metallic Bronze Paint
- Foam Brush
- Rusy Barbwire
- Hot Glue
Start by cutting a square piece of burlap large enough to cover the foam head and to drape a little below. Tie the burlap to the head at the neck with twine. Next, brush a generous amount of Mod Podge on top of the burlap, making sure to cover the face and head completely. Let dry.
Once the burlap has dried, add black paint to the eye sockets, nostrils and mouth. I did this with my hands to give it a dirty look. I even rubbed a bit of bronze paint all over the burlap to give it a more worn out look.
Next, trim a piece of the barbwire and hot glue it to the mouth. This almost gives it a stitched look.
Add some more barbed wire on the eye sockets making an “x”.
Tie some barbwire around the neck and you’re all set! YIKES, isn’t it creepy? EEK!!!
