DIY It’s a Hoot Felt Owls

DIY It's a Hoot Felt Owls are such a great craft to make! Perfect for parties.

DIY It’s a Hoot Felt Owls are a great project made from Styrofoam balls and felt. So easy to assemble once you cut all the felt pieces. You can even choose colors to make around a theme for a birthday, baby shower or any party! The possibilities are endless. My cousin, Katie recently made these for her son’s Third Grade Sale at school. She made boy and girl themed owls. Aren’t they super cute???

DIY It’s a Hoot Felt Owls Directions

Things you need:
2 – 4″ Styrofoam Balls
4 – 25mm Googly Eyes
Felt sheets – colors of your choice
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Owl One Template
Owl Two Template

What to do for Owl One:
1. Flatten your styrofoam ball by gently pressing against a table’s surface. This will be helpful later, to keep the owl from rolling.
2. Print out the Owl One Template. Cut out each piece. Begin by tracing and cutting out your feathers (this is number 3 in the owl one template) from your felt squares. You may want to cut out two different colors of feathers, depending on the owl you may have in mind. Glue the felt feathers onto the styrofoam ball, starting from the bottom and go up. Stagger and glue on the feathers on top of one another until you have almost reached the the top of the styrofoam ball. Since owl two does not have a head covering, cover the entire styrofoam ball with feathers. One color should be used for the front of the owl and the other color should be used as the backside of the owl.
3. To make owl one’s face cut out shapes 1, 2, and 5 from the owl one template in felt of your choice. To make the beak of the owl, cut a feather out of brown felt. Place and glue the small eye piece (#2) onto the larger eye piece (#1). Glue on the googly eyes and brown felt feather nose with a dab of hot glue. Next, glue the cone shape (#5) over the glued felt eye pieces. Be sure that the point of the felt cone is aligned with the middle of the eyes as pictured. Do not round off the corners of the felt cone yet. This will come later.
4. To make the ears of the owl, trace and cut out two triangles (#4) from brown felt. Pinch the two corners of the brown felt triangles and hot glue together. Here comes the tricky part of putting together your owl… you have to glue the felt ears onto the styrofoam body first. You will have to figure out the placement of the owl’s face, then glue on the ears. After you have glued on the ears, hot glue the front of the face onto the styrofoam body. Gently wrap the remaining part of the felt cone shape around the styrofoam ball and round out the corners as needed before gluing.

What to do for Owl Two:
1. Flatten your styrofoam ball by gently pressing against a table’s surface. This will be helpful later, to keep the owl from rolling.
2. Print out Owl Two Template. Cut out each piece. Begin by tracing and cutting out your feathers (this is number 3 in the owl two template) from your felt squares. You may want to cut out two different colors of feathers, depending on the owl you may have in mind. Glue the felt feathers onto the styrofoam ball, starting from the bottom and go up. Stagger and glue on the feathers on top of one another. Since owl two does not have a head covering, cover the entire styrofoam ball with feathers. One color should be used for the front of the owl and the other color should be used as the backside of the owl.
3. To make the eyes for your owl, cut out two of the large circles (#1) and cut two of the smaller circles (#2) from felt of your choice. Glue the smaller circles on top of the larger circles once you like the placement. Then hot glue the two googly eyes onto the smaller circles. Cut a brown feather (#3) for the beak.
4. To make the ears of the owl, trace and cut out two triangles (#4) from brown felt. Pinch the two corners of the brown felt triangles and hot glue together. Place and glue the ears onto the owl. This will be your guide for the rest of the owl’s face. Place and glue the beak onto the owl. Finally, glue on the eyes with hot glue.
