Do you know what a scarecrow is? Scarecrows are used to protect crops from birds. They’re made of old clothes, hay, wire, and other things that the farmer has lying around. There are many different types of scarecrows but each one can be recognized by their straw hat or headdress. The unique purpose of a scarecrow is to scare away birds from fields, particularly crows, which cause damage to crops.
What We Need
- Popsicle Sticks
- Glue Stick
Popsicle Stick Scarecrow
Grab seven popsicle sticks or lees or more and line them up accurately for perfection. Take another stick and break it into two halves. Glue both the halves of the sticks and stick them to the lined popsicle sticks. This will hold the sticks together.
Now take another popsicle stick and apply glue to it. Stick it near the top of the shape diagonally. Take your red paint and paint the stick you stuck in this step. Also, paint the part above this stick. This will look like a hat.
Now cut out round eyes from the white paper. Using a black marker add extra details as we have in the eyes in the illustration.
Now grab the orange sheet and carve out a triangle on it. Cut the triangle and apply glue to it and stick it in the middle and under the eyes.
Now mark a smile under the nose and eyes to make a happy scarecrow, not a frightening one. Also, make lines cutting the smile as we have done, but also focus on the pattern of these short lines; the first line is big and the second I small and then the third gets bigger and so on!
Now take another piece of orange paper and start cutting it from the bottom to keep it uncut from the top. These will be kind of like the hair of the scarecrow. Fold the top of the shape that is uncut and glue it under the hat’s base just like we have done.
Make another one as you did in Step 6. Make a turn on its uncut top a swell and apply glue on it. Stick this turn under the hat’s base. We have given it more volume so they look messy like a scarecrow usually is.
