DIY Scarecrow Shadow Boxes

As autumn arrives, the countryside transforms with plaid-shirted scarecrows standing proudly in cornfields, their straw hats serving as decoys to ward off hungry birds. These quirky figures have become synonymous with the fall season, symbolizing harvest and abundance. In our DIY Scarecrow Triptych Shadow Boxes project, we bring a whimsical twist to this tradition. Using the warm honey pecan finish of the Auden shadow boxes, we capture the essence of pumpkins and fall foliage in a three-piece artwork perfect for your mantle. Follow our easy steps to add adhesive vinyl faces, using our complimentary template, and embellish them with faux floral accents. Now, your scarecrow has a charming companion, making your autumn decor truly delightful!
