Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun with popsicle stick crafts. They are simple enough for little kids to enjoy while still being fun for adults as well. This popsicle stick scarecrow craft is perfect to get everyone in the fall spirit.
Supplies needed to make one popsicle stick scarecrow:
- 9 popsicle sticks
- 2 googly eyes
- Yellow, Purple, Orange and Black Paint
- A wooden button
- Orange craft foam
- Peel and Stick Magnets (Optional)
Note: Feel free to make your scarecrow as unique as you’d like! If you don’t have these paint colors or extra supplies on hand, just take the popsicle base and create your scarecrow however you would like to!
First, line up 7 popsicle sticks in a row. Using elmers glue (or hot glue) add an 8th popsicle stick diagonally across. Make sure the glue is completely dried before moving on to the next step.
Turn the base of the scarecrow over and glue another popsicle stick about a third of the way down, at a slight angle. This will create the scarecrow’s hat.
Now comes the fun part! I painted the scarecrow’s hat orange with a yellow stripe. I then took a wooden button and painted it purple.
Next, I glued the button onto the hat, added googly eyes, and painted on his mouth.
Using craft foam, I cut a triangle out and glued it on to form the scarecrow’s nose.
Finally, after all the paint and glue was dry, I went back in with purple and black paint to create a little patch on his hat. Just for some extra fun detail!
And that’s all there is to create this adorable popsicle stick scarecrow craft!
How to turn your scarecrow into a magnet:
How cute would this craft be as a refrigerator magnet? All you need to do is add one of these peel and stick magnets to the back of the scarecrow. You don’t even have to use glue! How easy is that?
