{Adorable} Owl Craft for Kids

Make an adorable owl craft with toilet roll tubes and fabric scraps…

Owl crafts are just adorable, aren’t they?

Because owls are typically thought of as being a fall craft, we’ve made them for halloween, but, I think these little guys are cute enough to make at any time of the year.

Supplies for making your adorable owl craft:

supplies for adorable owl craft

  • toilet rolls
  • fabric scraps
  • paint
  • googly eyes
  • buttons/gems/jewels
  • glue
  • orange felt or construction paper (beaks)

Start by squeezing the end of a toilet paper tube to form the ears of the owl.  You can tape it in place, but I made ours up ahead of time, and used my glue-gun.

Then have your hooligans paint the tubes.

A paintbrush and some water keeps baby busy and happy while we’re crafting.

Now it’s time to dec your owl out with wings, eyes, a beak and anything else you want to use – sequins, beads, buttons etc.

      > Thanks for letting me know! I’ll look into that. Hopefully it’s an easy fix. I’m not terribly technically inclined. lol

      Thanks again for letting me know about that. It was an easy fix. There are probably a few others scattered thru the blog that aren’t linking up as well, as I know I made the same mistake with a few links. If you ever run across them, please let me know!
