Make a Fall Bench Display

Feature your Own Scarecrow
Building a scarecrow is a great DIY or family activity. Start by filling old clothes with leaves to give them shape, and fit them together to form the body. Finish with a pumpkin or even a balloon for a head. You can carve the pumpkin or use markers and paint to create the perfect face and bring your scarecrow to life. Top it with a hat and you’re done!
Create a Harvest Arrangement
A harvest décor theme can be achieved using plants that grow around the fall. Use large corn stalks as a great eye-catching piece and couple them with pumpkins, flowers and other gourds to really get that harvest season feel. Adding lanterns and wooden features can also help finish the look.
