Snow Owl Christmas Ornaments

I made these ornaments from items I already had on hand, and one piece of glitter cardstock.
Finished Snow Owl Ornaments
The bodies are made from cardboard toilet paper tubes painted white, with their ends folded in.
A circle punch was used to add the eyes, and "feathers". The wings were cut by hand, and the beak is a scrap piece of yellow paper cut in a triangle.
The loop to hang up the owl is a gold pipe cleaner glued on the back.

    I love this cute owl and am going to make with a 3rd and 4th grade class, but I cannot find the perfect ratio for the eye circles. Do you remember what sizes you used? Many thanks! A

    I am the elementary art teacher who stole this idea--but we used paper mache, sequins and sparkly fun foam for the wings. Added a sparkly pair of ear muffs for easy hanging. These were made by second graders. We make a keepsake ornament every year in every grade, and this is my favorite one this year. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I had a great time making my owls. I decided to use goggle eyes and scissors that made a feathered look. Thank you for sharing Pam.
