Spooktacular Halloween Owls

Spectacular Halloween Owls: toilet rolls, buttons and feathers, oh my…

I am such a sucker for “cute”.  And I’m a huge fan of recycling when it comes to crafting, so these Spooktacular Halloween Owls have totally won me over!

These toilet roll owls were actually inspired by the Adorable Owl Craft that we did a few years back.  This year, our  youngest hooligan is quite smitten with owls, so I thought it would be fun to put a new spin on an old favourite for her.

This is sweet and simple, and kids of all ages are going to love it.

Gather your supplies:

supplies for toilet spook-tacular toilet roll halloween owls

  • toilet roll tubes
  • paint
  • large buttons
  • craft feathers
  • glue (I thought we might need hot glue, but school glue was fine)
  • yellow felt or cardstock (for beak)

To make our owl craft, you’ll need:

I cut our toilet rolls into various lengths so each of our owls would look unique, and the little one had  a great time painting them up.

When they were dry, she brushed on a generous amount of white glue.  The “generous” bit was perfect because our button-eyes were large, and therefore, quite heave, but they held in all that glue.

Next came the beak and the feathers.

Then we sat them in the sun and let them dry.

Ok, is it just me, or are these just too cute?

I can’t decide which I love best, our new Halloween Owls or our vibrant Adorable Owls.   Which ones are your favourite?
