3 – Cut a paper hat, any shape you like, and add a paper trim. Glue the hat onto the scarecrow’s head.
4 – Give the scarecrow some patches on his clothes by glueing on some squares of coloured paper. Finish them off by drawing on some stitches with marker pen.
5 – Next glue on some eyes and a paper triangle nose.
6 – Draw on a smile and its stitches. Finish off your scarecrow’s face by gluing on two pink heart cheeks.
