This homemade costume for babies entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Megan, the 'Scarecrow' costume creator:

This is my son Chanler. He is dressed as a scarecrow for his 2nd Halloween. I was determined to make his costume this year, as I was not impressed with any in the store. They are all the same and not real creative.

I want him to look back on all his Halloween costumes and realize he wasn't the typical and popular character on the Disney channel. However I want this costume to scream Halloween/Fall.
Being our favorite time of year is Halloween and the fall season, my husband and I couldn't think of anything better than dressing him up as a scarecrow. And definitely not the out-done Wizard of Oz scarecrow, but a homemade, cute as pie, scarecrow.

We bought everything and made it ourselves. We bought overalls and brown shoes from the goodwill. 2 yards of burlap, left over from our rustic wedding, to use to make patches and his hat. We bought raffia and the perfect plaid shirt from Wally-world, and broke out the glue gun!

The overalls were a piece of cake...the hat?!... Let's just say after the 4th try, we settled for what we had and stuck with that! And it's actually my favorite part of his costume!

To complete the look, we had to add a little of moms brown lipstick (stolen from grandmas back in the 90's) to draw up a perfect little brown scarecrow nose!

I absolutely love this Halloween costume I've been trying to find it for my son he is 2 1/2 if anyone knows where I can buy this costume please let me know

#2 comment by Megan Trahan September 5, 2014

It's 100% home-made. Read caption and it'll give you details on how it was created. If be willing to sell it after I found out the gender of my baby. If it's another boy, he will wear all his brothers costumes that I've poured my heart and soul in to.

#80 comment by heather October 16, 2016

Hey posters, I fell in love with this cutie as well. I did see she does sell her custom Scarecrow costumes I think Pinterest said this one was sold but they range from $55-$80, but I'm disappointed reading everyone's post asking for help with the hat!! And nobody got any replies from the creator. I came here hoping she had it posted to cuz I love the hat also!! But I had to go it my own luck! Lol When I decided to make my son a Scarecrow for Halloween this year, I also made his costume from scratch, including his hat from Burlap. I bought a yard of burlap and had no idea what to start with. So I used my seamstress measuring tape and measured his head. And I added 4 inches to this. Total. Then I laid my burlap out and I took a piece of chalk and I drew a straight line at the bottom the entire length of what my measurement was. From there I had to decide how tall I wanted his hat. So I went up about 5 inches and drew a line almost as long as my bottom line from there I connected those two lines at an angle _ / -\ , these symbols should give u an idea of what I mean by that if your following me, first symbol is bottom line,left side top and the right side. This is what your chalk line should be on your burlap. This is also what you will want to cut out in your burlap, and cut out of a spare fabric to line the inside of your hat for comfort.I turned mine inside out before this next step, The next step you will do is hot glue your seams, I tried this on my son ,several times before actually gluing it, and I'm glad I did, I also made his hat taller than you may chose, by the 5 inches,as I mentioned earlier. If you chose to do the same measurement, I found it easier to go ahead and rubber band the top of your hat before glueing it, and leaving it turned inside out. If you wait to rubber band until after glueing it, then this is the step for you, at the top of your burlap your going to tuck in your exces, determining the height you want for your hat, you can also play around with the shape at this time. Once you get it where you like by pushing the excess burlap inside the top of the hat, your going to gather & wrap a rubber band around it. From there you can cut out a piece of burlap to make a band to be glued to the outside to make a brim if you like, if you chose to do this you can cover the glue line with ribbon of sorts. I chose to glue Autumn leaves,button & a sunflower to my son's for an adorable Scarecrow hat. But if anyone has any questions about these directions, I'm sorry they are just tossed up here. Feel free to hit me up! Hhipskind[at]gmail.com

#81 comment by Emily October 30, 2016

Just finished my daughters verision of it. The hat wasn't as hard as I imagined it be. I used burlap and a twine string. I used a hat of hers to draw a circle onto the burlap and made the rim 3 inches around which could have been bigger but I didn't know how much burlap I needed for the rest. For the top part I made a cylinder and sewed it together, make sure the circle for the head is a little bigger because it will be a little smaller after sewing together. The top of the cylinder just bunched up and tied it with twine. Just have to see on the patches to the hat and I'm done!!

#82 comment by Cheyenne Reynolds November 20, 2016

I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love instantly. I already had the overalls, shirt, and boots. I went to Michaels and the Dollar Store for the rest of the materials/accessories needed came home and finished the costume that same day. On Halloween I captured a similar picture and I'd say I nailed it. Looks almost exactly like your son in this picture the cutest thing ever!. Got tons of compliments! I'd love to share it with you.
