"Straw Boss" Bale Man
Here's a photo of a "Straw Boss" bale man that we recently put together. The legs are hard core bales about 2 1/2 ft. in diameter while the soft core bale used for the body is about 5 1/2 ft. in diameter. To make the hat brim I cut off part of a ribbed front tractor tire, then mounted a 12-gal. barrel on top of it and duct taped black plastic to it. The eyes and buttons were made by cutting up a blue plastic pail while the nose and mouth were cut out of a red pail. To make the arms I shoved sticks into the body and covered them with cardboard tubing that was originally used to hold rolls of carpet. A glove is attached to the end of each arm.
