Nature Inspire Owl Wreath

1 Material
1 Hour
We had the cutest baby owls in our backyard recently. They inspired me to make a new wreath. I really like making things from nature so these guys are put together with basic natural items that you may already have at home.
I used some leftover drop cloth fabric to draw a pattern for the owls. Don’t have drop cloth fabric? Use muslin or cotton. How cute would a couple of denim owls be made from old jeans? Cut them out leaving just 1/4 inch for a seam allowance.
Sew along the line leaving a small opening for turning. Turn right-side out, and stuff with some poly-fill, or anything you have, such as cotton balls, old clothes or socks, even newspaper. Then hand sew the opening closed.
Decorate the front by hot gluing natural elements to the bodies to give them some personality. Here I used sea shells, eucalyptus leaves and pine cones for the eyes. A piece of dried orange grass for the nose, and some bay leaves for the feathers. Use your imagination to find similar pieces to use. You could draw on the features with sharpie pens.
This fall owl wreath turned out really cute, and looks great on the side of our entrance. I especially like the way it complements the neighboring felt flower wreath, hanging on the front door. Looking at it now, I think this one could work for any time of year. After all, who doesn’t love a cute owl.
