Using some fairy lights, layer the tomato cage, then use wire or branches for arms. Over this, place the gunny sack and purchase straw for scarecrow costumes as hands. The pumpkin candy pail is for the head.
5. Tomato Cage Ghosts
You can make these adorable Ghosts using mostly dollar store supplies.

Then cover it all with a white tablecloth from the dollar store. Cut out eyes and a mouth from black felt and attach them with hot glue. Cut the bottom of the tablecloth into strips to give the bottom of the ghost a raggedy look.
