These cute decorated oatmeal creme pie scarecrows are an ideal way to add a festive holiday feel to store bought cookies. They are perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving or any fall event.




  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Cut out a hat using the crafting foam or construction paper.
  3. Decorate the front with some type of design using the Sharpies. Get creative with the shapes and try varying designs.
  4. Cut the raffia in lengths of 1 1/2 to 2 inches to use for the scarecrow’s hair.
  5. Tape the raffia to either side of the back of the hat.
  6. Glue the hat to the front of the oatmeal crème pie package. There is a packaging seam on the back, so it’s easy to figure out which side is the front.
  7. Glue on the googly eyes.
  8. Draw a triangular nose on the packaging using the orange Sharpie. You may have to go over the triangle with the marker 2-3 times so that it shows up well.
  9. Draw the scarecrow’s mouth using the black Sharpie.
  10. Glue on the button cheeks.
  11. Set the oatmeal creme pies aside and let everything dry for at least an hour. Overnight is even better.


Note: When gluing on the hat, I recommend holding the cookie package upright so that the cookie falls to the bottom of the package. Then glue the hat on. If you don’t do this, when someone picks up the cookie, the hat and other features may not line up well with the cookie and it won’t look right.
