DIY Halloween Scarecrow Craft and Hershey Candy Bites

Fall is such a fun time of the year. I don't know about you but we have parties and bon fires to go to just about every weekend. This of course includes making halloween recipes, buying Hershey's Candy, creating new fall recipes and more!

One of our favorite events that leads up to Halloween Trick or Treating is our annual Trunk or Treat Party. This year I celebrated with making a scarecrow and turning myself into a scarecrow. How do you celebrate Fall and Halloween? What is your favorite candy and recipes which you share with family and friends? 

I had a lot of fun making our scarecrow. This year I made it with everything I had inside the house. I wanted it to be an indoor scarecrow so I didn't use hay to stuff it. The project took me under 30 minutes to make.

Scraps of fabric, old shirts, sheets,etc to stuff the scarecrow
