Spectacular Halloween Crows: toilet rolls, buttons and feathers, oh my! If you’re making some fun and easy Halloween crafts with your kids this month, put these little crows on your must-make list!
I am such a sucker for a cute bird craft! I’m also a huge fan of using toilet rolls for crafting here in my home daycare. So, our most recent fall craft, these adorable toilet roll “spooktacular Halloween Crows” totally won me over! They’re just too cute for words.
This crow craft was actually inspired by the Adorable Owl Craft that we did a few years back.
To make your toilet roll crows, you’ll need:
- toilet roll tubes
- large buttons
- craft feathers
- glue (I thought we might need hot glue, but school glue was fine)
- yellow felt or cardstock (for beak)
Making and decorating your owls:
I cut our toilet rolls into various lengths so each of our crows 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?
