Scarecrow Pudding Cups
Scarecrow Pudding Cups are a fun and creative treat for any fall or harvest party. The Butterscotch Pudding gives them a fun fall color, but you could use any flavor for variety or picky eaters. These could be prepared beforehand and passed out as snacks, or as a craft to let the kids decorate their own. Just keep in mind adults need to use the glue gun or let the kids use elmer’s glue.
First, gather all your supplies and materials.
Glue two wiggle eyes on one side of butterscotch pudding.
Cut a small triangle out of the felt sheet for the nose. Place the felt triangle (with a pointed side up) center and underneath the eyes. Use the black sharpie to draw on a scarecrow mouth.
Next, take a few pieces of raffia and knot them together in the middle. Should be approximately 5 inches in length after knotting. Pieces can be trimmed at slightly varying lengths.
Place a good amount of hot glue on the back off the raffia knot and place it on the edge of the pudding cup lid (above the face), pressing firmly so it dries in place.
Next, take a piece of burlap (approximately 8” x 3”) and wrap it around the pudding cup lid, with the bottom edge giving a slight overhang to the lid. Use a large dab of hot glue to secure the back end pieces in place on the top of the lid near the back.
Next place a dab of glue over the raffia ribbon knot and press the burlap down so it stays in place in the front as well.
