A new craft every day

Craftstick Scarecrow

These scarecrows may not scare away any crows, but they will put a smile on the face of little crafters.

Supplies

Craft sticks
Felt
Googly eyes
Tacky glue
Cardstock
Marker

Instructions

Before we began the craft, I had cut out the hat, hair (about 7 small rectangles), and nose from felt using different colors.

 
We started by cutting out a square from cardstock and gluing the sticks onto it to keep them sturdy & together.

The boys then took turns choosing which color hair and hat they wanted for their scarecrow. We glued the hair on first, then the hat.

 
Next, we glued on the googly eyes & nose and drew a mouth with a black marker.

Later, I glued a ribbon on the back so we could hang them up! (not pictured).
They're hanging up in our kitchen & the boys love them. Best of all: they were SO easy to make!
