Show off your craft smarts by making the FloraCraft Baby Owl!
- Time:1/2 hour
1Use the Foam Cutter or serrated knife to cut 1/3 of the ball off one side. This will be the front of the owl. Lay the ball cut side down and cut a small section off one side of the ball. This creates a flat spot on the bottom so the owl will sit upright.
2Glue one end of the Taupe yarn to the bottom of the ball. Hold the ball with the front facing you. Begin wrapping the yarn around the ball. Turn the ball clockwise as you wrap, keeping the yarn running in the same direction around the ball. As you wrap be sure not to overlap all the yarn at the center of the ball as this will create a lump at the center. Instead, overlap the wraps of yarn randomly across the front of the ball. Continue wrapping to completely cover.
3Cut two 1 inch circles from the Camel felt and glue in place on the front of the owl for eyes. Cut two 3/4 inch Yellow felt circles and glue to the centers of the Camel circles. Glue two 1/2 inch Black buttons to the Yellow felt circles.
4Cut a small, Yellow felt triangle and glue just under the eyes for the beak.
5Cut two Cocoa felt triangles that measure about 1-1/2 inch on each side. Fold the triangles in half and glue along one edge to create two cones. Glue the glued edge of the cones to each side of the head as shown for the ears.
6Create and cut webbed feet from the Tangerine felt. Glue to the bottom of the ball.
7Use the hair brush to lightly fluff the yarn strands free. Brush in the same direction as the wraps of yarn to avoid pulling any strands loose.
