How to Make a Popsicle Stick Scarecrow
Line up 7 standard size popsicle sticks in an even line.
Using the hot glue gun, run a line of hot glue the entire length of a small popsicle stick and press it horizontally onto one end of the 7 sticks.Repeat this process on the other end of the 7 sticks, too.
Flip the newly made board over and run an angled line of hot glue near the top of the board and apply a standard size popsicle stick at an angle to form the brim of the scarecrow hat.
Paint the face section of the scarecrow with a solid coat of yellow paint.
Paint the hat section of the scarecrow with a solid coat of maroon paint.
Use the hot glue gun to attach the googly eyes just below the brim of the hat.
Using the orange paint, create a triangle shape nose below the eyes.
To decorate the hat, use the hot glue gun to attach decorative fall leaves just above the brim of the hat. We used silk leaves, but you could use real leaves you find outside.
With the black marker, draw the scarecrow’s mouth.
Use the gold glitter glue to add small dots along the brim of the hat.
If you want your scarecrow to have hair, glue the gold pipe cleaners.
And now your popsicle stick scarecrow craft is complete!
