Scarecrow Craft Pattern <—–GET THE SCARECROW PATTERN HERE.
- paper bowls (We used 20 oz size from Target.)
- tan paint
- black buttons
- raffia (You can also use yellow construction paper strips.)
- yellow tissue paper
- orange, pink and brown cardstock or construction paper
- black and brown marker
- Tacky Glue
1. Begin by painting the bottom of your paper bowl with your tan paint. Set it aside to dry completely.
2. Print out the scarecrow craft pattern and use it to cut out a brown scarecrow hat, an orange scarecrow nose and print scarecrow cheeks.
3. Cut off several sections of raffia about 12-inches long. Add tacky glue to the top of the paper bowl and add your raffia to it. You will need to hold down the raffia for a minute or two to help it hold securely. You could also use yellow construction paper strips as an alternative to raffia.
4. Use a stapler to staple the brown scarecrow hat to the top lip of the paper plate.
5. Glue black button eyes onto your scarecrow craft. Then glue on your scarecrow nose and cheeks.
6. Layer three yellow tissue paper squares together and scrunch them up together to make a yellow flower. Glue it onto your scarecrow hat.
7. Finish your paper bowl scarecrow craft by using your black maker to draw a mouth with stitches on your scarecrow and add some markings to the scarecrow hat with your brown marker.
Your paper bowl scarecrow craft is finished!
