Owl You Need Is Love



My daughter Luna is an owl lover. I thought for valentines I would attempt to whip up some sweet owl love for her. This little owl is what came to life! It was really simple to make. Here's the how to incase you want to whip one up too!

For this you will need
felted sweaters in what ever colors you want your owl to be
small twigs
two buttons
glue gun (or sewing supplies if you prefer)
rice 
dried lavender (optional)

To begin

Cut out two matching rectangles from the felted sweater that you want to be the body of your owl.


Cut a small rounded strip out of the top of both rectangles to create the ears.
(Be sure to hang onto the strips ~ these will be the wings!) 


Cut a heart for the face out of a felted sweater (or any felt you have on hand)


Glue gun it on to your owl body.


Cut out to felt circles of the eyes and glue them on.


Glue your buttons over top.


Cut out a small rectangle for the nose and glue it on.


The sweet little face will then look something like this!



Glue (or sew) the edges of your body pieces together, being sure to leave one side open.
Fill the owl with rice and lavender until he is comfortably plump.
Glue the last remaining side up.


Break or cut six little twigs up and glue them together for the feet.
Glue them to the bottom of the owl.


Last but not least, glue the strips you cut to create his ears onto his sides... voila he has wings to fly! 


Here's a little extra love to brighten your day!

  3. I love your cute little owl. I've been participating in a felt critter monthly craft at Creative Cabin and I've got hooked on making little felt birds. I searched the net and found all sorts so I'm busily stitching away.

  4. Do you think white wool felt would also work or is that too stiff? Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. I think it would work just fine Eva. I just had this fuzzy felted sweater kicking around and it made me think of a baby snowy owl :)

  7. Hold nothing back from this charming, wide-peered toward couple and gladly broadcast your adoration. In beguiling pinks and greens set against a shining foundation of loving red, they sit in agreeable quietness which no one but buddies can hoot.

  8. One night, when showing up home, he finds an eurasian eagle owl on his couch. The winged creature gazes at him seriously. He comprehends that he should act. The following day, when shows up in his office, he is dressed as an owl, however nobody gives the smallest consideration.

  9. This sweetheart owl unit adds sweet beautiful detail to a nursery, children's room, or den. With two cuddly owls and two beguiling winged animals upon a quite valuable tree limb, this lively strip and stick decals sing out the embellishing expression "Owl you need is love".

  10. Now and again, everything necessary to start genuine, enduring adoration is a solitary, mutual second. Getting trapped in the downpour. Grabbing each other's attention from over the room. Discovering you both love absorbing the morning daylight that hits your roost at the elmwood park zoo, which is actually what started love for two owls.

  13. The two works under analysis are Brothers Grimm’s fairy tale “Cinderella” and Anne Sexton’s poem “Cinderella”. Both works centre on the same plot - the story of a young unfortunate girl who finds happiness. However, the anne sexton cinderella poem analysis is a bit different. Read here why.
