I got this idea from my favorite blog A Beautiful Mess. I decided to simplify it a bit and use as a library craft. After scrounging around in my craft supplies I came up with the following items to make this cute little owl.
- Styrofoam ball
- Tissue paper
- Scrap of felt
- Large wiggly eyes
- Pipe cleaners
- Glue stick
I cut my tissue paper into 3 inch strips and folded them in half. I then cut the raw edges with scissors to make a fringe about 1 inch about apart. Do not cut all the way through.
Using the glue stick I went around the Styrofoam ball and wrapped the fringe in layers . For the top, I used smaller pieces of fringe and layered them in a tight circle.
The feet are made out of pipe cleaners cut in half .
Cut a small triangle out of brown felt and stick some wiggly eyes on the front of the owl. Stand back and admire your slightly ruffled, slightly circular owl.
