Paper Bag Owl

This cute little owl was inspired by this Goody Bag post.  You can find the print out for the face at the link as well.  Using a word document I made ovals for the wings and hearts for the feet.  You can simply draw the shapes and cut them out if you like.

This owl will make a cute centerpiece for Fall or you can fill it with goodies for a Harvest party.  When I make this with the kids I will have some recycled paper to stuff inside the bag to give it a rounder shape.  I will also give the kids a chance to color the bag before it is turned into an owl.
What you need:
  • Small brown paper bags
  • construction paper for wings and feet or shapes printed out
  • Cardstock or thick paper to print the face on
  • Scissors
  • Crayons to color paper bag
  • Stapler
  • Glue sticks
  1. Have kids color their paper bags as they like
  2. Stuff bags with paper or goodies
  3. Fold the top down twice and staple shut
  4. Cut out the face, wings, and feet
  5. Using a glue stick, glue the face to the front of the bag covering the fold
  6. Glue the wings to the sides of the bags and feet to the bottom
  7. Show off your new owl
