Dressing up your home with a fall owl

I hope that your fall is off to a great start. I love to spend my fall months creating lots of cute home decor. Something about the cooler temps makes me want to spend my days inside dressing up my home.

I have been finding a lot of inspiration on Pinterest lately and I came across this cute owl:

I thought that it would be cute to make my own similar plush creation out of paper.
I started this project by hand drawing an owl shape onto pattern paper.


I cut out two. 1 to use as a backing and 1 to use as the front side.

I then dressed up the front side with some basic shapes that I cut using my Slice (Making Memories tool) and lots of yummy GCD papers.
Next, I used paper towels to stuff my owl, to make him plump and cute and look like a plush figure (you can also use tissues for this).

I used strong adhesive 450 quick dry glue from Helmars to close up the seams and edges as I stuffed. After he was stuffed I set him aside to dry.

Next, I chose some chipboard pieces from Melody Ross's chip art collection to use as the owl's feet.
I painted them white, then attached them to the bottom of the owl.
Here is the final project:

This owl is bright and cheery and sure to lift our spirits on a cold fall day.
to create the body I used papers from the youthful eggsuberance line by Heather Tozzi.
sunday morning paper
celebration paper:eggscellent paper:
for the eyes I used:
easter basket paper b side:
and I used two papers from the Material girls line:

the sweetest thing paper (flower shape around the eye):
For the eye (heart shape) I created custom buttons using the Epiphany Crafts heart shape studio tool and girly girl paper.
I hope this project inspires you to make a cute fall plush for your home!
