    *Let's Craft*: Cardboard Tube Owls Craft Project #2

    This cute yet simple craft project is on the agenda today. I couldn't find origami paper I liked to make the wings but did buy some nice card stock. Photos coming soon!


    (Text from the site.)

    "I hoard cardboard tubes. Wrapping paper. Paper towels. Toilet paper. Ribbon. If there is a cardboard tube inside, I toss it in a bucket and save it for a project. We’ve used the tube stash for peggie people slides, marble runs and, just lately, owls!

    You know you want to make your own. You’ll need:

    cardboard tubes – if you don’t have the toilet paper size, cut up a paper towel tube
    paint and brushes
    google eyes
    fabric or paper scraps – for wings and beaks
    Ready? GO! First thing is to paint your cardboard tubes. The results of this will vary based on the age of your child. Ellie is two. I think we did pretty well!

    Now you have to wait for them to dry. Wait. Wait. Wait. This is a good time to cut out triangles for beaks and petal shapes for wings. We used origami paper, but fabric scraps or felt would work well too. Once the tubes are dry, place your thumb along the top edge of the tube, and smush it in…

    …then do the same thing on the opposite edge.

    You’ve made pointy owl ears! Now glue on some eyes.

    Add the wings and tah DAH! Owls!

    Why, yes, that is a life jacket she is wearing. If you want to fancy this project up a bit for the older set, give them the tubes with the tops already folded down and see where imagination takes them. There are lots of creatures out there with pointy ears."

    Gorgeous and so cute! I love this easy, kids craft and regret just having thrown away a ton of cardboard tubes that I didnt know what to do with. Sigh... Ah well, thankfully there will be some again soon.

    Thanks for sharing!
