Transcript:How to Make a Scarecrow Lollipop

Hi, I'm Scott for About.com. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a scarecrow lollipop.

Scarecrow Lollipop Materials

To get started, you'll need:
  • Lollipop
  • Beige felt or piece of muslin
  • Brown felt
  • Yarn, string or twine
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Markers
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

Create Scarecrow's Face

To begin, use a compass or a circle stencil to cut the beige felt into a circle that is about 6" across. Next, cut a piece of yarn, twine or string to about 10" long. Center the lollipop within the fabric circle. Pull the edges down around the lollipop. Smooth out an area for the face. Tie the felt in place using the yarn. There is now a scarecrow face to decorate. Use the marker to draw a mouth with stitch marks. Now draw in the nose. Carefully glue the backs of the wiggle eyes and place them on the scarecrow's face. Hold them in place for a moment so the glue will set.

Finish Halloween Craft With Hair and Hat

Now cut some of the yarn or twine into short pieces for the hair. Glue the hair. Place it carefully on the scarecrow's head. Press down on the glued pieces for a moment so the glue will set. Finally, cut a fat triangle out of felt. Glue the edges together to make a cone hat. Hold the glued edges in place for a moment so the glue will set. Add additional glue to the top of the scarecrow's head and position the hat. Let the glue dry for a couple of minutes.
