Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

Before I retired, when I wanted to make a craft, I would have to spend hours looking for a particular craft that included a tutorial. Today, I spend more hours looking for particular crafts, but it is with the goal of writing articles that will help others easily find crafts that they want to make. In this article you will find photos of all scarecrow crafts and the name of the site where you’ll find the project tutorials.

If you are looking for crafts to make for this fall’s decorating, you’ll want to check out this article. There are some easy to make scarecrow crafts for kids, that will work well at home or in the classroom. All of the crafts will be fun to make and display during the fall Halloween and Thanksgiving seasons.

Decorate for the Fall holidays by making the brown paper bag scarecrow centerpiece shown above. Find the tutorial at Craft Klatch.
