Measure 2 1/4" down on each side of the cup and cut slits. Press the front of the cup down rolling the sides in towards the center of the cup. Bring the back sides of the cup over the front and staple the sides down.

Horned Owl Decoration or Change Purse

Owl Craft - Owl Decoration or Owl Change Purse Craft for Kids from www.daniellesplace.com

These charming little owls can be used for many different purposes. Stuff them and make them plump for a children's toy, hang them on your Christmas tree, string them together to make Christmas garland. Add a zipper and use them as change purses or gift holders.

What you will need: White muslin or felt material, buttons or felt for the eyes, felt for the beak and feet, hot melt glue, pliers, zipper (optional), and decorative items such as Rickrack and lace. *Note- decorative buttons like the ones we used can be very expensive. I cut my buttons from old clothes I bought from rummage sales.

How to make:

Owl Change Purse Craft from www.daniellesplace.com1. Cut out two each of the the body shape and four each of the wing shape from the muslin material (two each of the wing if using felt). (Patterns for this craft are available to members.)

2. Use one of the body patterns to make the front of the owl. Glue or sew on buttons for the eyes. Large orange buttons and decorative gold buttons with black shiny middles were used for the eyes of the owls pictured. The shanks (back of the buttons) were cut off using pliers. You can also use felt or googly eyes. Cut a triangle shape for the beak from gold felt and glue between the eyes.

3. Sew Rick Rack, ribbon, or other decorative items on the front of the owl. You can also use fancy sewing machine stitching or embroidery.

owl diagram4. Making the owls out of felt is much easier than using muslin because you don't have to worry about frayed edges, and you don't have to sew the material and then turn it right-side out. To make the felt owl place the wings and feet between the body patterns and pin them to keep them in place. If you would like to include a loop for hanging the owl, cut a piece from the felt, fold it in half and then pin it between the body pieces so that it is up side down. Sew all the way around the body to secure the feet and wings. If you want the owl to be plump, leave part of the top of the head between the ear tuffs open, stuff it with Polyfil, and then sew it closed.

owl diagram 25. If you would like to make a change purse. Cut open the back of the owl as shown in the pattern and sew in a zipper. Then sew the front and back together.

Owl change Purse6. To make the muslin owl decorate the front piece first. Sew two wing patterns together and then turn them right side out and stitch around the edges. (You could use felt for the wings instead and you would only need to cut two wings.) Pin the wings to the front body part so that the wings are facing inward. Pin the feet to the body pattern so that they are facing upward. Sew around the body pattern leaving the top middle part of the head open. Turn right-side out and then top-stitch all the way around the body.

owl craft change purse craftYou can also add a zipper to make a change purse. A pattern is provided for this also. The back pattern is in two pieces and is longer because you have to make a hem where the zipper is sewn on. Once you hem the pieces, place the zipper so that the teeth match up with the hemmed edge and sew it on. I unzipped the zipper to sew it on, then zipped it back up when I was done, and then cut off the extra length. When you sew the back and front together the zipper tab won't be able to come off the zipper.

Horned Owl Milk Jug Recycle Craft for Kids

Milk Jug Owl Craft for Children from www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Empty Plastic Milk Mug

Yellow and Brown Craft Foam Sheets

Low Temp Mini Glue Gun

Sharp Scissors

Brown Valspar Plastic Primer Spray Paint or Krylon Clear Plastic Primer Paint - If you are using the Acrylic Patio Paint

 

How to Make the Milk Jug Owl Craft:

1. To remove the label fill the jug up with hot water and let it sit for a minute. This will loosen the glue. Carefully pull off the label. Do not get the label wet before trying to remove it or it will just disintegrate and you will have a hard time getting it off. Once the label is removed you can wash and dry the plastic milk jug.

1. Cut the top off the jug where the lid screws on with scissors. Fill the jug with a few cups of sand or pebbles to add weight to the owl.

3. Spray the jug with plastic primer paint and then paint it with the acrylic patio paint or use brown spray paint after using the primer paint and add details iwth acrylic paint.

2. Cut the wings, feet, and horn pattern (PDF Pattern) from fun foam and glue them to the milk jug. To make the horns bend up, slightly stretch the fun foam with your fingers at the points. (Problems Printing?)
