I don't think
it comes as any surprise
that I love me an owl.
I have owl rugs,
and owl pillows.
I have made an owl
I don't know what it is
but they are just so stinkin' cute
I cannot resist their
wide eye charms.
So when the new Anthropologie magazine
came in the mail
and I saw this picture.
I thought to myself-
"self, you could do that."
and so friends,
And it only took one 45 minute nap time
to get this easy, peasy project done.
And the more you think
you are messing it up
the better you
are actually doing.
Don't you love a craft like that?
Here is a side by side comparison in
case you are doubting
your ability to accomplish this project-
IT IS SOOO EASY!
to make your own
you will need:
or old scissors: for cutting wire
Thin wire: I used floral wire because that is what I had on hand but if I had bought some I would have preferred something in a metallic tone and not green. If floral wire is all you have then you can paint yours after you are done like I am going to.
A picture of the Anthropologie owl: to give you a little guidance as you piece yours together.
2 Buttons with 4 Holes: for the eyes
I started with the eyes and worked my way out from there.
There is no right or wrong way to make your owl.
The more quirks it has, the better I think
Just start bending the wire
and let your inner creative goddess
Good luck and make sure if you make any Hooters to share pictures with me!
I am using mine as a tree topper right now
but I have a feeling
that she is going to stick around
long after the Christmas stuff comes down.
Cause like I said-
I love me an owl...
