Owl Christmas Tree Ornaments

Updated on December 1, 2014

Owl Christmas Ornaments

My mother collects owls so I decided to look for an owl Christmas ornament to give her this year. I was amazed at the fantastic selection that was available, so I brought them all together in one place for everyone to enjoy!

Owls have a somewhat mixed reputation around the world with some cultures revering them and others shunning them, but personally I love owls and think that these owl Christmas ornaments are gorgeous.

Just look at the image opposite - wouldn't you love a [fake] snow laden Christmas trees decorated with Snowy owls and silver baubles?

This hand painted glass ornament is of a Spotted Owl which is an endangered species in western North America. The fact that so many people love owls however mean that the Spotted Owl's plight has seen it become a pin-up bird for people promoting environmental awareness and fighting to save ancient forests and the wildlife that live in them.

Brought to you by the king of Christmas Ornaments himself - Kurt Adler - these owl ornaments are multi-colored and designed to add a touch of fun to your holiday decor.

In Aboriginal lore the owls are the souls of women who have passed........that must be why owls are also portrayed as wise!!!

Wise Owl Christmas Ornaments

I have always been of the belief that owls are very wise, this may be because of Owl in Winnie the Pooh always knew everything! When people graduate they sometimes get owl inspired graduation gifts or cake which further ratifies the belief of owls being wise. So if you know someone who knows everything or someone who's just graduated from college then maybe you could buy them an owl Christmas ornament.

Snowy Owl Christmas Ornaments - Owl Christmas Ornaments

Christmas and snow go together really well and Snowy Owls are really beautiful so it seemed only right that they should have their own section!!!

How Many Owl Christmas Ornaments Should You Have?

Did You Know?

There are beliefs over what it means to see a certain number of owls?

1 owl means impending death

2 owls means success in imminent venture

3 owls means woman will be married into the family

4 owls means disturbance

5 owls means imminent travel

6 owls means guests arriving

7 owls means mental distress

8 owls means sudden death

9 owls means good fortune

So I think this means that I need 2 owls on my tree or 9 owls on my tree, how many will you be buying?

      So many of the old superstitions and wives tales actually seem to belong to animal behavior rather than our own. An owl is death to other smaller birds, but to us it is harmless, and more apt to hide than attack. The owls imagine is beautifully natural and I love the Christmas ornaments.

      Interesting folklore I did not know on what the number of owls means. I definitely will be looking to put 9 on my tree this year! I love the snowy owls but my tree is white so I may buy the brown ones so we can see them.

      I fell in love with your realistic looking little owls too and 2 or 9 are definitely the numbers to go with...maybe both! The 6 reminded me of my Grandma, she knew company was coming when her palms itched and was never surprised to see us. I love that you added the sweetness of maybe that's why owls are considered wise after letting us know that lore has it that they represent the souls of departed Aboriginal always give us a little extra along the way, congratulations on home page honors!

      I never thought of hanging owls on my Christmas tree as ornaments. What a very clever way to decorate a Christmas tree. Owls are very special to me because of an incident when I was much younger. I hold owls very dear to my heart.

      Did you know this was on the Front Page?!? Congratulations! I'm so glad you were on the Front Page because I truly enjoyed reading this very interesting page about owls as Christmas Tree Ornaments.
