What Owl Projects Can I Do?

Artists and crafters portray owls in fascinating ways, and I particularly enjoy seeing the variety of styles and colors used. My search helped me curate over 50 lovely owl-themed projects. I hope this list of ideas inspires you to try a few of these out!

1. Sweater Owl Ornament

Do you have a sweater (or sweaters) you're loathe to throw away but don't plan on wearing again? Try upcycling them into sweater owl ornaments to decorate your tree, gift someone else, or use as party favors.

2. Mr. and Mrs. Who

This is a project I want to make. You'll be working with paper mache as you follow the directions at Purple Hues and Me. The end results will be great décor pieces.

3. Hoot Shoes

These owl-themed shoes really are a hoot. I love them! Decorating the shoes with fabric is such a cute method, and you can find the steps at The Art of Homemaking.

4. Paper Plate Owl

It's nice when you can find paper plate crafts to do with little kids. It's an inexpensive craft to make, and the kids will love working with them. Huppie Mama has the instructions you can use to make your own!

5. Who's There Owl Wreath

This is one of the cutest fall wreaths I've seen. I like the humor and the use of feathers. To make a wreath like this one, go to About Family Crafts for the tutorial.


6. Owl Pillows

These colorful owl-shaped pillows would make a great addition to a bedroom or family room.

7. Cupcake Paper Owls

Owls made with cupcake liners are so inexpensive to make and would make cute place cards for a baby or bridal shower! Kids will love making these too.

8. Felt Owls

Make these cute felt owls as ornaments or pendants!


9. Owl Measuring Tape

You'd never know a tape measure was hidden in this little owl. This would be a great gift for a crafter or decorator. Find the steps at tiny apartment crafts.


10. Appliqued Kitchen Towels

Appliqued owls on kitchen towels would be a beautiful gift for any kitchen.

11. No-Sew Burlap Owl

Make this cute owl using burlap and buttons over at KIDS CRAFT ROOM.

12. Pom-Pom Owl

FIKS*D shares how to make pom-poms and the simple directions to put this owl together.

13. DIY Owl Decoration

14. Hootie Owl

Hootie is a lot of fun to create. You start with an empty bar soap box and use cotton balls and tissue paper to make this cute little owl. Kids & Glitter shares the project that kids will love making.


15. Candy Wrappers

Give candy bar gifts wrapped in these cute little covers!

16. Paper Sack Owl

Fill this owl paper bag with a gift of candy or another treat to make someone happy!


17. Owl Oven Mitt

This owl oven mitt looks cute on its own but would look great in your kitchen.


18. Owl Pendant

I love the looks of this sweet owl pendant.

19. Pinecone Owl

Lia Griffith came up with this lovely project to do with the kids. I'm sure they'll love making the owl and displaying it!

20. Owl Ornament

It's hard to believe that something that looks so intricate could be as simple to make as this is. Find the directions at that artist woman.

21. Paper Cup Owl

Parents shares this nice craft project that could make a nice pencil or pen holder for a teacher.

22. Owl Babies

Aren't these little ones just too cute for words? See the steps at I heart crafty things.


23. Acorn Owls

If you're lucky enough to find acorns around your neighborhood, you'll have lots of fun making owls out of them. Use a twig for the branch and googly eyes for a fun touch!

24. Crocheted Phone Cozy

Crochet this phone cozy for yourself or for a gift to someone else.

25. Owl Button Art

You'll need a lot of buttons to make this cute owl art!

26. Cupcake Liner Owls

I think this would be sure a cute classroom project. Have each of the kids make three owls to decorate a tree branch. You could even use holiday-themed liners for these little liner owls for a festive touch!

27. Framed Owl

If you like to decorate with an owl theme, this pinecone owl will be an excellent addition to your décor.


28. Scrappy Owl Bags

An outstanding owl bag with step-by-step instructions! Make sure to click on the photos for instructions.

29. Fluffy Knitted Owl

This knitted owl uses a new fuzzy type of yarn, which yields a fluffy and cute finished result.

30. Woven Wall Art

Cute, cute, cute. I love these small woven owls.


31. Candy-Toting Owl

This owl treat bag is a really nice way to gift classmates with a candy snack.

32. Small Box

Fabric Paper Design shares how to make these adorable owl boxes, patterns and all!


33. Sock Owl

A little owl made from a sock can be one of a kind if you use the stray socks that show up in the dryer.

34. Wise Guys

Print these little owls and then just cut and glue to put them together. I can't think of an easier project that is as cute as this one.

35. Whoo Am I ?

This would be a great project to help kids introduce themselves at the start of the school year.

36. Colorful Patterned Owls

These little owls are so bright and cute that the kids will enjoy making their own. You'll find the instructions at I heart crafty things.

37. Bottle Cap Owl

Change the colors of this bottle cap owl to fit in your color scheme and enjoy looking at the results.

38. Hoot Hoot

This sweet little owl is made using a plastic bottle!


39. Owl by Candice

Make this owl with felt and put it on a pillow or use it to make a wall hanging. Feel free to change the pattern sizes to fit your needs.


40. Fuzzy Owls

Learn how to make pom-poms using two colors to create these outstanding owls!

41. Owl Heating Pad

Find out how to make this useful owl heating pad at MODERN Mrs. Darcy.

42. Owl Costume

Turn your little one into a darling owl! This could be a great costume for a class project or for a dress-up night.

43. Heat-up Snuggly Owls

Plush fabric makes these heat-up owls especially snuggly.


44. Willow Toot

Doesn't this surprised owl make you want to laugh out loud? Make a bunch of them to give out as stocking stuffers or favors at your next party!

45. Stuffed Owl

My Cool Homeschool shares how to do this easy craft for kids. You only need a few supplies, so you can easily put it together for them!

46. Lucy Longlegs

Make this owl doll for a little girl and it'll be her friend for life.

47. Owl Tealight

SHOW TELL SHARE makes this owl tealight using a soda clay recipe. It's a nice gift you can make for so many occasions.

48. Owl Treat Bags

I think this owl treat bag would be a perfect teacher appreciation gift. Add a "Thanks for giving a hoot" gift tag to pull it all together.

49. Little White Owl

Fit this craft in with the reading of the Little White Owl storybook. The kids will love making this owl.

50. Pop Art Owl

51. Hooty Owls

The only difference that I can see between this owl and the one shown earlier is that the wings are made with brown paper, but the difference is so stark that I'm including this project. These owls can be made over at AMELIE'S HOUSE.

52. Pom-Pom Story Owls

Pom-pom story owls are clever props to use while reading to the kids.

53. Valentine Treat Bags

I really like this lovely treat bag project. I can imagine making them and decorating them with red hearts and embellishments to make them fit for Valentine's Day.
