Foam Dice Scarecrow (Dollar Store DIY)

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.
