Beautiful paper owl bunting is a lovely craft for kids. Pick out some pretty paper, go dotty, floral or plain and whip up some pretty strings of paper bunting with the kids.
What you need
- Pretty paper in contrasting colours and patterns – you’ll need 3 sheets to make 6 owls.
- White A4 paper
- Brown or black pencil
- Saucer and bottle top for drawing around
- Sticky tape
What you do
- Draw around the saucer to make six owl bodies – use pretty paper for this.
- Draw around the bottle top to make 12 owl eyes – use the white paper for this.
- Draw 12 small triangles for the owl wings – use contrasting pretty paper for this.
- Draw six smaller triangles for owl beaks – use contrasting pretty paper for this.
- Cut out all the shapes.
- Colour in the owl eyeballs.
- Stick the owl features onto the circles.
- Cut 6 small lengths of string and using sticky tape attach to the reverse of the owl.
- Tie the strings to a longer length of string so that the owls hang down from the bunting.
Hints & tips
We love this owl bunting draped around the kitchen… my kitchen is always bursting with kids paintings and artwork – and this bunting fills a little gap between Halloween and Christmas decorations and everyone loves owls! You could even make a mini version and use as garlands to decorate Christmas trees.
Older children might like to make these from felt rather than paper.
