Candy Scarecrows

Happy Fall ya’ll! Here’s a fun project if you need favors for a Fall family gathering or a Halloween party! I made these candy scarecrows to give away at our local scarecrow festival, and the kids LOVED them! If you Google or Pinterest search “candy scarecrow,” there are a ton of variations on this craft. Here’s my take on it!

The key is finding the right shaped heads and torsos. I used Brach’s round hard candies for the heads, Nerds boxes for the torsos, Smarties for the legs, and good ol’ Tootsie Rolls for the arms. If you wanna get fancy, you can draw pumpkin faces on the heads. 😀

All you need is a hot glue gun. Glue the little wrapper ends to the box.

I tied a little piece of raffia around the necks to give them more of a scarecrow vibe. You could do it to the arms and legs too if you want. They came out surprisingly sturdy and didn’t fall apart; the hot glue worked well with the plastic wrappers. So easy and wicked cute!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and happy crafting! 🙂
