The Martha Stewart Show, May 2006
Glue colored papers on top of a sheet of heavy-duty cardboard to create a "shirt" and "pants."
Have someone lie down on a piece of cardboard and use a marker to trace around the body, not including the head or extremities.
Use matte knife to cut out the shape.
Make two sets of holes in the "collar" and "belt buckle" area. Thread zip ties in the holes and attach the cutout to a broom handle.
Stick the cutout in the block of wood, in front of a bale of hay, or in your lawn. Dress your cutout by tying on a bandanna, adding gardening gloves, attaching a belt buckle, and putting on boots.
