I love any craft using recycled toilet paper tubes, or are they toilet paper rolls? Not sure really but in any case, if you've been saving them (as I have) then you can whip out a few and make yourself some cute owls. I thought this would be a great starting point for a little craft project with the kids this afternoon. I find that if they see how cute the finished product can be they'll be more likely to actually sit down and make something, whether or not their results are at all similar to mine.
I think I'll bring out some paint, some paper, a glue stick and regular glue, some sequins maybe some feathers (if I can find some) and see what I can inspire my little ones to create. I hope to share the results with you! And if there aren't any little ones around, so this is a great craft for big ones too....wouldn't these look great as place cards for guests at your holiday table? Or hanging out just about anywhere? Grab a black felt pen, medium nib, and have some fun!
Of course, toilet paper roll owls are all over the place, but I was specifically inspired by this photo, to give credit where credit is due! All the best!
