How to make a Popsicle Stick Scarecrow?
Take four popsicle sticks and arrange them side by side. Apply tape to the centre of the sticks.
Flip the arrangement over and Stick a smaller popsicle stick at one-third of the length from the top.
Secure another small popsicle stick on the back side, covering the masking tape.
Grab a small piece of yellow paper and cut out two rectangles. Create fringes on one side of each rectangle, then affix them under each side of the small popsicle stick. Make sure to complete this step before the glue dries.
Now, attach two googly eyes and use a black marker to draw a mouth for the scarecrow.
Use the marker to also draw the scarecrow’s clothing.
To add some colour, paint the hat brown and the dress with a combination of red and blue watercolours.
Your scarecrows are now complete and ready to display!
