What You Need

Directions

  1. Color the plate yellow.
  2. Next, make a hat & a triangle nose with the orange construction paper.
  3. Attach these to the yellow plate with some googly eyes to create a face.
  4. Glue some pieces of yarn under the hat to give the scarecrow some hair.
  5. Let's embellish the hat with a sunflower. Start off by cutting out a square and folding it in half twice. Then draw a similar scallop pattern with the crayon and cut it out. Unfold to reveal the flower.
  6. Next, punch holes along the edge of the flower. Weave the brown yarn through the holes, creating the 'seeds' of the sunflower. Tie the loose ends to the back and glue to the hat. Cut and glue two leaves from the green paper to finish off the flower.
  7. Next cut the paper plate as shown: notching in at both sides and creating a half circle/smile in the center.
  8. Use the brown crayon to mark symmetrical dots along the top and bottom mouthpieces. Hole punch at each dot mark.
  9. Weave the yarn through the holes to create the scarecrow's smile. Tie the loose ends with neighboring stitches on the backside.
  10. To finish the face, cut two pink circles & glue them to the top part of the plate only to allow the bottom to move freely.
