Owls are so cute and always remind me of fall and winter. I though it would be fun to create owl crafts and decorations with kids for Thanksgiving. This owl centerpiece would add an outdoor feel to any table because of the autumn leaves and natural elements and the owls are a great craft to make with kids while the turkey is in the oven.
