When you have an abundance of crows, like we just made with our Craft Stick Handprint Crow Craft, then you’re going to need scarecrows. And there’s not a more perfect scarecrow craft than this. It’s small, it’s easy to make, and you could even use the end result as a fall bookmark in your favorite fall book.
For another cute scarecrow craft we also have our Paper Bag Scarecrow Craft, which are absolutely darling. For more fall fun also check out our Paper Plate Raccoon Craft, Cardboard Roll Fox Craft, Simple Folded Paper Owls Craft, and our Paper Plate Yarn Lacing Apple Trees.
To make our Jumbo Craft Stick Scarecrow Craft you will need jumbo craft sticks, small googly eyes, acrylic paint in a variety of fall colors, cardstock in brown and different fall colors, a black pen, a glue stick, and scissors.
Make a Scarecrow with Jumbo Craft Sticks
- Jumbo craft sticks
- Googly eyes, small
- Acrylic paint – assorted fall colors
- Cardstock – brown, fall colors
- Black pen
- Glue stick
Begin by cutting 4 very thin strips from the brown cardstock.
Glue the strips on the top of a jumbo craft stick.
Also cut a small rectangle to fit the craft stick from a fall colored sheet of paper. Cut a strip slightly wider than the rectangle, too. Glue the strip to the rectangle to form a hat.
Now glue the hat to the top of the craft stick, over the brown strips. Some of the brown strips should be poking out like straw.
Adhere small googly eyes.
Draw a sewn on looking mouth with the black pen.
Now paint from the head of the scarecrow down. Let dry.
And add a few cross hatch marks with the black pen.
So cute, so easy, and so fun! A great craft to make more than one!
