Muffin Liner Owls

When I think of fall, I think of things like colorful leaves, pumpkins, corn stalks and owls. Maybe I am odd with the whole owl thing, but around my neck of the woods, that is when I notice them calling. Here is a neat little craft I did with the oldest country kid that is really easy to do, but oh so cute! And, I bet you have everything to do it in your house right now. Well, if you have kids or like to bake, you probably have everything!

What you will need:

Toilet paper tube
2 muffin pan liners
White paper
Orange paper
Tape
Glue
Markers

First you need to prep you muffin liners for later use. Start by folding the first liner in half and then in half again so it looks like the triangle shape in the photo. Now cut off the tip area and cut along the creased areas so you have four pieces like in the photo on the left. On the second liner, fold it in half and cut off the top tip. Next cut along the creased area to make wings.
















To make the owl, start by pushing in the two sides of one end of the toilet paper tub and tape it to form the ear area. To make the owl's tummy area, glue and layer the four pieces of liner you made earlier starting at the bottom and working up. .


Glue the two wings you made to the back of the toilet paper tube. Use the white paper to cut out eyes. Once you have your eye circles, grab your marker and draw on some eyeballs. Be creative!  Next cut a triangle out of the orange paper to make the owl beak. Once you have your face pieces, just glue them on above your tummy area and voila! 


You now have a beautiful little owl friend! 

These little guys are so easy to make and cost so little to do. All of the steps are super kid friendly too! I think these little owls are great to make as a nature project or as a decoration for Halloween!
