- Begin by creating the head of the scarecrow. Line up several wood craft sticks together, gluing them together where they touch. Secure them by running an additional craft stick along the back of them, holding them all in place.
- Add your pair of googly eyes. Just add a drop of glue and press.
- Use your craft foam to create a nose for your scarecrow. We snipped out a simple triangle shape with scissors and glued it in place.
- Finish the face by adding a mouth. Use your marker to create a simple stitched mouth.
- Now, add the hair. Cut rick rack into strips and glue it to the top of the head. This will look like straw.
- Your scarecrow is complete when you add a hat. We cut a simple hat from foam and embellished it with felt flowers. With our felt scraps we also created a little bow tie for our scarecrow. Just snip and glue into place. Now he looks like a real gentleman!
