DIY Owl Crafts and Decorations (Easy Recycled Crafts)

Sharing is caring!

DIY Owl crafts are so cute and always remind me of fall and winter. I thought it would be fun to create owl crafts and owl decorations that are easy to make with reused items and inexpensive things from the craft store.

Here’s how to make an owl with paper toilet paper tubes, paper towel rolls or any type of paper tube. The eyes are made from flatten bottle caps and paper flowers. Decorative paper is used for the wings and beak and colorful feathers are added to the top to make the ear tufts. The make the DIY Owl Centerpiece idea, it uses a paper plate for the base, branches and stones from outside and faux fall leaves and moss.

This would be a great Fall craft to make with kids. They can go outside to gather sticks and rocks to add to this owl centerpiece. This beautiful and fun decoration would add a fall decor to any table because of the autumn leaves and natural elements. This owl craft is also perfect to make with kids while the turkey is in the oven on Thanksgiving day. The DIY Owl crafts would also look adorable at each Thanksgiving place setting.

Watch my video on how I flattened bottle caps to make the owls eyes.
