  • Red Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tea Light Candel

Create the Body

Take the kraft lunch bag and cut 1/2" slits along the top of the bag. This will make it look like the head is made of straw. You can cut the strips as long as you'd like but make sure not too long otherwise they will be too floppy and make the bag tilt over (not a good thing when your adding fire)

Next, with the bag still folded, cut strips on the bottom of the bag. Do not cut them too long. They wont detach because its the secured bottom section of the bag, but it does allow little slits of light to shine through and looks really cool.

Create the Face
To create the face we took our black stardream cardstock and sketched out the mouth and eyes. Since this scarecrow is meant to be spooky you don't need to use perfect lines and it should be jagged. Cut out tow triangle shaped eyes. Cut tiny little red circle from the red cardstock for the scary pupils.

Add the Detail
Last but not least glue everything to the bag and add the tea light. On Halloween night light the candle.
