Bottle Top Craft Owl

Bottle top craft - owlWe really enjoy crafting with stuff from our recycle box and adding some empty squash bottles to our modelling collection last week I took a close look at the bottle tops and J and decided that the pattern looked like owl eyes so we set about creating a bottle top craft owl with them.

Making a bottle top craft owl.

I started off by quickly cutting out some strips of paper with my paper cutter in various browns, oranges and blues (J chose the colours for the owl no idea why blue but I think it looks quite effective). Then we sat down and did some scissor practice with me holding the paper and J the scissors to cut the paper half way to create a feather effect when glued (no pictures I’m afraid as I’m the one with the camera and had both hands full).

I quickly drew a rough outline of an owl on a piece of black card and we set about gluing the strips of paper to create a feather like effect on the body.
