Christmas gift ideas...


This scarecrow kit would make a fantastic gift idea for a family, £25 from Hen and Hammock. It contains all you need to make your very own scarecrow, a great winter activity in preparation for all your seed sowing in spring!

I am sure if you felt creative enough you could put your own kit together using sacks, and old hats and clothes bought from charity shops? But it might be cheaper and easier to buy the set as it contains loads...

- 2 recycled coffee bean sacks
- 1 broom handle
- 2 bamboo canes
- 1 ball orange garden string
- 2 needles
- 1 marker pen
- 1 packet of seeds
and beautifully illustrated instructions. 

There is even an enchanting gallery of scarecrows, on the Hen and Hammock website, from customers who have bought the scarecrow kit!

  1. This is a lovely idea, and what a great shop. I hadn't heard of them before. I'm hoping to spending a bit more time planning the garden this winter. I always seem to be surprised by planting season and tend to do things late and in a rush when setting up the garden. The results are fine but I think that spending a bit more time planning in front of the woodstove would be helpful. This scarecrow would be a nice project to do with the children when we are watching the snow melt and sort of can't believe that spring will ever come.
