Easy DIY Scarecrow

Easy DIY Scarecrow

I know that I mentioned in my last post that Jace and Zoey get to do all kinds of adorable crafts now that they go to school. A couple of weeks ago they had a sign up sheet for people who would volunteer to make a scarecrow for the fall festival that we have to go to later today.

Is it too late for fall DIYs? I think not! Fall isn’t over, and this guy took like 30 minutes to make. Well, not including drying time. I also spent $0. Yes, made it with all stuff that we already had. Well, the school supplied the sticks.

Here’s what we used:
1. Sticks (one has a pointy end and one is like a paint stirring stick)
2. Cereal Box and paper to wrap it in
3. Clothes to dress your scarecrow
4. Markers/crayons/glue/ribbon whatever you choose to use

Bam. thats it.

We literally used scrap paper to wrap this cereal box up.

Then the kids and I drew a face.

I used a fall colored ribbon that I had in my craft box to tie the sticks into a cross and glued the box to the sticks. Then, I used one of my old work shirts to dress it. Yes, I know my scarecrow is wearing a publix shirt. But sometimes when items go off to preschool they don’t make it back. SO I wasn’t about to send him off in one of my plaid shirts that I actually wear and like. haha! Plus, the shirt was missing a button and I couldn’t wear it to work anymore. (Seriously Publix, get your button sewing skills together!)

Then I stole this hat back from Zoey and made a little stand with an old flower pot.

I think it’s kind of adorable considering what it is, a cereal box and sticks! The kids were pretty proud of their creation, which makes me like this simple project even more!

    That scarecrow is so cute! I’m so glad that this is a cute scarecrow and not a creepy one. Scarecrows tend to creep me out. But I’m sure it still gets the job done!
