Painting a scarecrow face on a girl is simple. Whether she's dressing up for Halloween or attending a harvest festival, a scarecrow face can be cute, funny or scary. Show her several pictures of scarecrows to help her decide the type of face she prefers. Real scarecrow faces are typically drawn or painted by hand so the simpler your face painting the better.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Ask the girl to clean her face with warm water to remove any dirt.

  2. 2

    Cover her face with a thin coat of yellow or pastel face paint. Dab the paint on your hand and use a make-up sponge to smooth it evenly over her face. Rinse off extra make-up from the sponge. If the girl is young, avoid covering her face in make-up.

  3. 3

    Draw thick eyebrows over her eyes with dark brown or black eyeliner pencil. The eyebrows are a key element for the scarecrow's expression. Make them triangular if she wants to resemble the scarecrow from the film "The Wizard of Oz." Give them a high arch if she wants to look surprised, make them close to her eyes and angled up for an angry expression, or close together and angled down for an innocent face.

  4. 4

    Use red face paint to circle the apples of her cheeks and use the make-up sponge to spread the paint. Brush bright pink or rouge blush around the cheeks of a small child instead of paint.

  5. 5

    Dot each check with three black or brown freckles using the eyeliner pencil.

  6. 6

    Draw a wide mouth over her lips and extended on both sides using the eyeliner pencil. Add straight stitch lines at the ends and centre of the mouth. Cover her lips in pink or orange lipstick.

  7. 7

    Cover her nose with red or orange face paint and extend the sides to look like a triangle or large circular button.
