Wonderful Fall Scarecrows

Stuff and dress up a great fall scarecrow!

Craft Project Directions:
To make a wonderful fall scarecrow you will need craft sticks, paper shreds, construction paper and tissue paper.

 First take the craft sticks and make a cross- three craft sticks high and two craft sticks across- this will be the base for your scarecrow.

Next cut out a round scarecrow face and basic body shape from construction paper. Arrange and attach these to the craft sticks with glue or tape.

Then take your tissue paper and fold it in half (you want the pieces you use for your scarecrow to be double thick so they won't tear when you stuff him.) and cut out a 2 shirts and 2 pants- these will be bigger than your basic scarecrow body.

Staple them to the front and the back of the scarecrow, leaving spaces between the staples that will allow you to stuff in paper shreds to fill up your scarecrow, and bunching them together to create billowing clothing.

Stuff you scarecrow with paper shreds, decorate the clothing, add a delightful face, and don't forget to add hands!

Enjoy Crafting!
