Whoo, whoo is ready for a really fun project? We used lots of textures for this owl and different shades of orange - just for fun!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Textured Cardboard
  • Cardstock
  • Paper Plate
  • Yarn
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Single Hole Punch 

Create It!

Step 1: From different types of cardboard, cut a circle, a square, and a rectangle.

Step 2: Cut the circle in two equal halves.

Step 3: Paint the shapes and a paper plate and allow the pieces to dry. Paint some additional textured cardboard and save for Step 7.

Step 4: Punch holes around the outside edge of the paper plate. Thread a piece of yarn through, knotting in the back. Thread yarn through the holes creating a texture on the owl's body. Knot the yarn in the back once finished and snip off any extra yarn.

Step 5: Glue a half circle to each side of the paper plate for the owl's wings.

Step 6: Cut two circles from cardstock or painted cardboard.

Step 7: Cut equal sized strips from the painted textured cardboard.

Step 8: Glue the strips in the center to form an X, adding strips until a circle is formed.

Step 9: Glue the cardstock circles to the circles.

Step 10: Cut two smaller circles from cardstock and glue to the center of the eyes.

Step 11: Glue the triangle to the top of the square. This will form the owl's face.

Step 12: Glue the eyes to the owl's face.

Step 13: Cut a small triangle and glue on the owl for a beak.

Step 14: Glue the owl's face to the owl's body.

We added a bow tie to dress our owl up but feel free to accessorize for your unique creation! Owls are one of our favorite animals and we really enjoyed using so many textures and shades of orange for this one.
