  • 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.
  • Finally, add your sunflower to the hat.
