We have been making lots of foam dice crafts this year and our foam dice scarecrow is such a great decoration for Fall! Using Dollar Tree supplies, we made this adorable scarecrow in about 30 minutes.
This craft pairs well with our foam dice pumpkins. The dice are sold in a 2-pack, so you could make one of each for just a few dollars.

DIY Foam Dice Scarecrow Craft
All materials, other than the paint, were purchased at the Dollar Tree. I have added links to comparable items available online if you don’t have a dollar store.
- Foam Dice
- Acrylic Craft Paint (Off White and Pink; I used DecoArt in Buttermilk and Bubblegum Pink)
- Wiggle Eyes
- Natural Jute Twine
- Mini Burlap Hat
- Craft Felt
- Hot Glue Gun or Craft Glue
- Pencil with a new eraser
- Black Permanent Marker
Paint the foam dice with off-white acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat.
Measure and cut a section of raffia to 8” long.
Tie a piece of jute twine around the center of the 8” bundle of raffia. Secure with a knot.
Glue the raffia hair to the top center of the foam dice. Then glue down the raffia on the right and left sides of the face.
Glue a mini burlap hat to the top front of the foam dice. Then glue the front of the hat brim down to the scarecrow’s forehead.
Cut a small triangle from dark orange craft felt with scissors, and then round the corners off.
Glue the felt nose and two wiggle eyes to the scarecrow’s face.
Using a new and clean pencil eraser, create cheeks by dipping into pink acrylic craft paint and stamping on the face on either side of the nose.
To finish the scarecrow face, draw on a smile from cheek to cheek with a black permanent marker. Then add vertical stitches using the marker.
