Scare­crow is at home in a vegie patch

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A MINIA­TURE scare­crow named Fred is set to make its home in the Staib fam­ily gar­den at Brooweena.

Ten-year-old Ian Staib con­fis­cated the rag bag and hay out of his dad’s shed to come up with his en­try of a minia­ture scare­crow for Satur­day’s Teebar Show.

Af­ter making a body of hay, Ian dressed Fred in a but­toned-up King Gee shirt and shorts.

The Brooweena State school stu­dent said the hat from his teddy bear was the right size.

“I cut out felt for the eyes, beard and mouth,” he said.

“I am now go­ing to put Fred in the vegie gar­den to scare the birds away.”
