How to Make a Popsicle Stick Scarecrow

1. Line up 4 regular popsicle sticks together.

2. You can add 2 mini craft sticks to the back to glue the 4 regular popsicle sticks together.

Or you can cut some regular sticks into smaller pieces and glue them to the back.

Glue a mini stick to the back

3. Paint the top of the popsicle stick brown on an angle of where you want the hat brim to go.

Paint the next area a light brown. Add a slight curve to where the face ends on the bottom of the face.

Then paint another color underneath. We used orange and blue.

Glue on strips of yellow paper to the edge of the dark brown paint on both sides for the hair. The top part will be hidden when you add a mini stick on top for the brim of the hat.

4. Paint 2 mini sticks dark brown.

Glue the mini stick on an angle to make the brim of the hat, making sure to cover up the tops of the yellow cardstock.

5. Glue on 2 small googly eyes.

Make the nose from orange cardstock and glue on.

Add Googly Eyes and Nose

6. Draw the mouth on with a black sharpie.

Note – if you do not paint the face the sharpie may bleed on the popsicle stick. We found painting first helped the sharpie not bleed.

Using the back of a paintbrush, add 2 dots of pink paint for the cheeks.

Add Mouth with Sharpie

7. For a finishing touch, cut out some small squares from yellow cardstock.

Add some hash marks to the squares and glue to the scarecrow body.

Make a bow from twine and glue just under the face.

You can also add a few hash marks on the hat with a black sharpie.

Add Bow and Paper Patches

8. Your popsicle stick scarecrows are now done!

These little guys can be placed around the home for Halloween or fall decor. Or you can add a magnet to the back and place them on the fridge!
