Dave Gugel has everything organized and ready to assemble. The lightweight pumpkin head or Jack-o'-Lantern is one of those fake ones that can be carved and used every Halloween. The scarecrow body will be a pillow and traditional straw, then dressed in men's clothes. All arms and legs are attached before the scarecrow is dressed up for the evening's entertainment. The Jack-o'-Lantern head goes on last.
