Scarecrow Candy Necklace

His job is to scare the birds and fill their hearts with dread. But your job is easier, to choose which to eat first: his arms, legs, or head.

What you'll need

  • Wrapped round taffy or caramel (head)
  • 2 Tootsie Flavor Roll Twisties (arms)
  • 2 rolls of colorful candies (legs); we used Sprees; Smarties work too<
  • 1/2-ounce box of raisins (body)
  • Low-temperature glue gun
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Small bundle of raffia

How to make it

  1. Keep the wrapping on all of the candies and glue the head, arms, and legs to the raisin box body. Parents may want to supervise use of glue gun.

  2. Cut five 4-inch pieces of raffia. Tie four pieces into a bunch by knotting the fifth piece around the center of the bundle. Glue the knot to the top of the body at the base of the head as shown. Trim the raffia if you like.

  3. Cut a piece of raffia long enough to fit over your child's head. Glue the center of the strand to the back of the box. Tie the ends together, and your edible neckwear is ready.
