I had so much fun making this Easter Owl for Jackson for his 2nd Easter! These wooden holiday forms can be found for a dollar or less at all local craft shops. I made a similar project for a Halloween decoration of a Witches Mask
Jackson loves ducks (quack, quack) and owls (hoo, hoo). I found this owl popping out of an Easter Egg and thought how cute it was. It’s a little different and unique then the average chick.
When you purchase your wooden decorative piece, there’s an outline of the image. These are really meant for children to color and decorate, but because of the outline this project is easily made by using the outline as a template. I made a card board template by first tracing all the outlined areas separately on to tracing paper. I then adhered the tracing paper outlines onto scrap card board and cut the pieces out. I used the card board pieces to trace around on my Designer Series Paper. I traced the pieces on the back of the paper I was using, so the outline pen marks didn’t show. I then cut out the shapes from all different scraps of Designer Series Paper.
All the pieces were then glued down with the Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue.
The owl eyes were cut out from Whisper White and Basic Black Card Stocks.
I added a button threaded with Baker’s Twine!
I printed out JACKSON‘s name and year from the computer and
punched it out using the Large Oval Punch.
Isn’t he adorable??
Of course I was asking about Jack!
