What is a scarecrow? The straw-stuffed, patched together figures are common symbols of autumn. Scarecrows were originally used to do as their name implies - to frighten crows and other animals away from gardens so they would not eat the crops.

Scarecrows are made by stuffing old clothing full of straw. The clothes are supported by wooden poles, and some parts are designed to move when the wind blows. To animals, the scarecrows look like humans.

Perhaps the most famous scarecrow is the character from The Wizard of Oz. This scarecrow wished to be given a brain in place of the straw that filled his head.

1. Begin the easy cartoon scarecrow outline by drawing the head, neck, and shoulders. Use a large "C" shaped line for the round head. Use a curved line to trace the crescent shape of the neck beneath it.

Then, draw a series of "U" shaped lines in a starburst pattern to indicate the straw sticking out of the collar. Then, extend two lines outward from the neck to begin the shoulders and arms.
