I love this guy! Sorry I wish I could have taken more pictures as I was going but my camera died and I really wanted to get this posted. My Mom first showed me this on West Elm. I thought that would be so fun to make since I had some crinkle cardboard left over from a package I ordered.
I started with the body. I put a little glue on one of the ends of cardboard and started rolling the cardboard into the circular shape. My pieces we're small so at the end I just added a little more glue and continued rolling. Until my circle was about 5 inches in diameter. I then went to the eyes and did the same as the body to about a 2-2 1/2 inch diameter. I had some brown marbles laying around that I hot glued to the centers of the eyes. Of course you could use buttons or anything else you have in the house. I hot glued the two eyes together and then to the top of the body.
For the eye brows I traced two leaf shapes, connect the bottoms so it's like a uni brow shape. On a flat piece of crinkle cardboard. Hot glue it behind the eyes.
I cut a rectangle shape about a half an inch long and cut a triangle shape for another half inch for a total of an inch long for the nose. I then hot glued the rectangle side between the eyes and for the triangle you can hot glue it to the body like I did or you can leave it extended out.
For the feathers I cut out 14 leaf shapes and hot glued them to the back of the owl's body.
To finish the owl off I put some fishing string in between the eyes and the eyebrows.
