Do you have a theme in mind for your Christmas decor? Rustic, red and white, gold, or perhaps you want to go for a blue Christmas? Whatever your theme is, I know there is already an ornament or ornaments in this series that fits your style, and there are many more still to come.
This year I'm going for a red and white theme with some gold thrown into the mix, I think today's project is going to be a good addition to it. I used lots of gold and white decorative papers that I had. The owls put on their pretty outfits to celebrate the holidays. ;)
The material's you'll need:
- Assorted decorative paper
- Elmer's Glue
- Hole punchers (1", ½", ¼")
- Jute rope (5" for each)
- Owl printable (You can find it here)
You can find most of the materials at Michael's
Cut two "owl"-lines out of your favorite paper and glue them together. Attach the jute rope at the top in between the two of them, as seen in the picture below.
Cut out the two wings, preferably in a different motive paper. Glue them to the sides of the owl, without gluing them all the way. Curl the ends of the wings.
Each owl needs three different size circles for each eye. (I used a 1" puncher for the biggest circle and a regular office puncher for the smaller one, the last one I had to cut out with scissors, but a ½" puncher would be perfect for this)
The final step is to cut and glue the nose. My daughter kept on telling me I made them too nosy. :)
Oh, well, it was to late for me to shrink those, but if you make them you can fix this issue.
I gave them each a little housie...
But, they preferred to perch on their tree branches!
