Cork owls with buttons and fabric scraps…
In case you hadn’t noticed we kinda like owls around here. Actually, we kinda love them. One little hooligan in particular is crazy about them which is just fine by me ’cause there’s nothin’ cuter than an owl craft. Just check out our Spooktacular Halloween Owls, our Paper Plate Owls and our Adorable Owls if you need proof.
The hooligans weren’t involved in hooligans in making these owls. They were just a little somethin’ I whipped up one weekend as a surprise for Monday morning.
They were super-easy to make with a glue gun and a few craft scraps:
What you’ll need to make your cork owls:
- glue gun
- flannel scraps
For the wings, I cut narrow, pointy ovals from a piece of felt, and then cut a smaller version from a scrap of flannel. I layered those and hot-glued them to the sides of the owls.
For the eyes of one owl, I glued small black buttons onto a couple of larger white buttons and glued them in place. For the other owl, I found a couple of large white buttons that had a small metal centre. They looked perfect as they were, so I didn’t bother adding a black button to them.
Then I added a small felt beak.
To finish the craft off, just for fun, I hot-glued both owls to a sturdy stick. What do you think? Cute or what?
The girls think so!
And if you think these are sweet, you have to pop over and check out Molly Moo’s Wine Cork Animals! You’ll love those too!
