Hi, friends! Fall is in full swing, and I have a ton of great ideas for you to fall into this fall! My favorite is this popsicle stick scarecrow, inspired by This Girl’s Life Blog?! Isn’t it adorable?!
POPSICLE STICK SCARECROW CRAFT
This popsicle stick scarecrow was so easy to make! Here’s what you’ll need…
- 12 popsicle sticks
- Orange paint
- Flesh-colored paint
- Googly eyes
- Orange felt
- Fall flower
- Black permanent marker
- Hot glue gun
First, you’ll need to trim two of the popsicle sticks.
Line up nine of the popsicle sticks to create somewhat of a square.
Attach the two trimmed popsicle sticks across the back using a hot glue gun.
If you’ll be having your students paint these, I would draw a diagonal line across the top so that they know where to paint the orange and flesh-colored paint. I did not do this for myself, but I will definitely be doing this for my kiddos.
Paint the remaining popsicle stick orange. This will be used to create the brim of the scarecrow’s hat.
Attach the hat brim, googly eyes, felt nose, fall flower and raffia hair using a hot glue gun. Draw on a cute scarecrow mouth, and your popsicle stick scarecrow is complete! Isn’t he so stinkin’ cute?!

Would it be possible to use tacky glue instead of hot glue and have it stay? I want to do this with my classroom of two-year-olds, but I’m afraid hot glue is too dangerous to have around even if I’m the only one using it.
Thank you for sharing such a great craft
Thank you! I think tacky glue would work! I used a low temp glue gun, but I agree that this would be a little too dangerous for your kiddos!
