Directions to Make a Paper Plate Scarecrow

1. Paint the paper plates and let them dry. We used a light beige paint color.

2. Cut out strips of yellow cardstock. If you have any scrap paper, this is a perfect use for it.

3. Glue the yellow strips to the sides of the paper plate to make the scarecrow’s hair.

4. Make the scarecrow hat by cutting out a large triangle shape from the brown cardstock. Add a strip of black cardstock to the lower part of the triangle to make the hat’s band.

5. Glue a few yellow strips to the top of the hat.

6. Add some line marks with a black marker to the hat.

7. Glue on large googly eyes and a triangle-shaped nose from orange cardstock.

8. Draw on the mouth with a black marker.

9. Add cheek marks with pink paint using a round sponge brush. You can also dip a small glue stick lid or other small cap into paint and dab onto the paper plate.

10. Tie a bow with twine and glue to the bottom of the paper plate.

Your scarecrow is now complete! Hang them up to decorate a classroom or your home for fall or Halloween!
