A fiber optic scarecrow is used as a Halloween or Thanksgiving decoration and is typically located near a home's window, facing outside. It is made of felt or fabric, has straw for hands, feet and hair, and features optic lighting in single or alternating colors.
Fiber optic scarecrows have a spectral optic lighting effect in vibrant colors such as red, orange, yellow and green, brightening up the entire area where it is installed. The fiber optic lights accent the scarecrow's eyes, nose and mouth, and light up when plugged in. While some scarecrows come with a pumpkin for head, others have cartoon faces with optic lighting installed.
