Growing up, I hated owls. They were so dated and uncool. Fast forward to around the time my first child was born and hooters were everywhere! Yes, I totally did say that. And now we have so much cute owl crap, no wait not actual owl crap. Anyway….
Looking for something to do with my kids (ages 5 and 7) lately, I turned to Kiwi Crate’s DIY* ideas and found something that looked like we had everything on hand. I set a high bar here.
All you need is a pine cone, cotton balls, and anything that will work as eyes-paper, googly eyes, stickers, whatever works! You can go all out and do a beak, etc… but like I said, we have a high bar around here. And I found the minimalist owl one of our cutest and he consisted of stickers, pine cone, and cotton balls.
Stuff the pine cone with cotton ball chunks and have a good time! Our owls seem to like it in our collection of found nests. Send pics if you make any! They look great on the mantle and I’d love to see how yours turn out!
Happy Snowzilla, if you’re local!
