It’s time! After 5 months of doing all other kinds of things, it’s high time to show you a new craft. Especially for, or with, the kids. A while ago, I pinned a link on Pinterest, to the website of Clémence G, a French designer. His owls are so cute and colorful. They inspired me and our youngest daughter N. (she just turned 4, two weeks ago) to make some paper ones ourselves.
Things I used (photo 1):
- Wrapping paper (different designs);
- Plain white paper;
- Black marker;
- 2 Circle punches (1 small, 1 medium);
- Regular craft glue;
- A nice branch (I bought 2 packages of 8 pcs, yesterday, for only 0,99 €/package! They measure about 38 cm each. 8 Are white, 8 are grey).
Photo 2: N. traced and cut out an elipse shape. I gave her a photo frame for this as it was much easier;
Photo 3 + 4: With both punches, N. cut out 2 little circles and 2 large ones. She painted the little circles black;
Photo 5: For the eyelids, we choose some other paper and with the medium punch, N. cut out 2 circles. I folded them once and cut off a little stripe (on the closed side) to get 2 , so they weren’t too big;
Photo 6: We first glued the black circle and on top of them the eyelids.
Photo 7: I also cut the beak and the body. Now it was time to essemble the owls;
Photo 8, 9 + 10: I started by glueing the body onto the elipse. Then I glued the beak and after that both eyes;
Photo 11: Here you can see that I also cut and glued 2 ears and the little triangle on the forehead. With a thin pencil I traced all lines. I also cut another owl-shape but a bit bigger. I didn’t have black paper on hand so I had to take a white (heavy) paper and painted the borders black with the marker;
Photo 12: N. glued the owls onto the bigger shape and finally, I traced the lines once again with this thick marker.
Done! I nailed 2 thin nails into the wall for the branch and pimped it with a bow that I made from a ribbon. As N. needs a new wallpaper in her room soon anyway, I just glued the owls onto the old wallpaper
Don’t they look cute?!
In the very first picture you can read the title of this blogpost (in blue); I just added it in Photoshop but somehow it looks like a wallsticker, doesn’t it? Would be a nice idea, if only such stickers wouldn’t be so expensive!
Well, I hope you enjoyed my new craft. I’m almost sure, that my subscribers won’t believe their eyes, when they see a new tutorial in their mailbox after such a long time I’m looking forward to create some new Christmas crafts so I hope you’ll check back soon!
