First, paint your paper plate and let it dry completely.
While your plate dries, cut out your hat piece using the template.
Cut out your hair pieces using yellow strips of paper. Cut longer pieces for a girl scarecrow and shorter for a boy, or any way you would like them to look.
Add your face elements, including eyelashes, if you wish. This includes the eyes and triangle nose out of orange paper. Draw a crooked line for the scarecrow’s smile and add dashed lines across it for the stitching.
