The spirit of Halloween

Halloween 2011, scarecrow

Although Halloween isn’t that popular in The Netherlands (yet), it still gives you a nice excuse to create weird things. This year I decided to create a scarecrow/wraith-ish figure: I made a wooden frame, covered it with polyurethane foam, shaped it with a knife, finished it with a layer of paper mache, and finally placed some LEDs in its ‘head’. It didn’t take long to create and it was fun to use old school materials again.

To be honest I’m very tempted to uproot it and give it a new home in a nice forest close by. I think you’re allowed to be a tiny bit evil on Halloween. 😛
