Updated on May 25, 2017
lbrummer profile image

Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and kid-friendly craft tutorials.

Artists and crafters have managed to capture the owl in a number of interesting and appealing ways. I love the variety and colors they use to depict the owl.

While searching for new owl projects, and looking for fresh ideas on how to make owls, I came upon some nice projects. In this article I will show you pictures of the owl crafts that I found, and I also include the name and URL or the project site. I hope you find this article helpful and that it saves you valuable time when you are looking for ideas to make your own owl art or crafts.

The directions for these Stuffie Owls can be found at Efemera Ink

1. Sweater Owl Ornament

Do you have a sweater, or sweaters, that you hate to get rid of, but you really don't plan on ever wearing again? Then, you might like to make owl ornaments to decorate your tree, gift packages or as party favors. Find the easy to understand instructions at Her Tool Belt . Download the owl tummy pattern and cut your pieces from your sweater and pieces of felt.

2. Mr. and Mrs. Who

This is definitely a project that I'll want to make. There is working with paper mache as part of the tutorial that you'll find at Purple Hues and Me. A great décor piece when this is finished.
