Kid Craft: Baby Owls

How cute are these little big-eyed babies?! I love them!
This simple Baby Owl Craft is an easy way to add a touch of autumn to your home.

Here’s a list of supplies you’ll need,
most of which are probably in your house right now!
– cardboard tubes (empty toilet paper rolls to be exact)
– cupcake liners (just 2 per owl). Wilton has some fresh and unique designs!
– scrap paper (not much; just enough for the eyes and beak)
– scissors (again for the eyes and beak)
– a hot glue gun (good old Elmer’s glue works too, just not as quickly)
1- Start by folding in the top of the tube.
2- Add a drop of glue to one side to keep your fold in place.
3- Fold 1 cupcake liner in half.
4- Glue it to the back of the tube to create the wings.
5- For outstretched wings, cut a cupcake liner in half.
6- Glue each half on the back of the tube at a slight angle.
7- Cut another cupcake liner into thirds. Trim off the flat base so only the ruffles remain.
8- Glue each ruffle, starting at the bottom of the tube, to cover the tube with “feathers”.  Add eyes and a beak and Viola!
Happy Fall, y’all!
