Cutest Owl Made from Pumpkins and Scrap Paper

Cutest Owl Made with PUMPKINS!!

There is a lot of fun at this time of year.  I can think of one project after another but having the time to execute them is another thing. ha ha 

Anyway, here is one thing I wanted to share with you all.... my owl made from pumpkins.




Last year I made these Piggy Pumpkins.


And this Cow made from a pumpkin also.


This year I wanted to make another animal and was inspired by some owls I saw on the internet.

The first thing I did was find 2 pumpkins that could act as a body and a head and spray painted them white.


Then I cut out lots of small circles from scrapbook paper to cover the front of the owl's body. I started at the top of the owl's body and kept working my way down to the bottom of the pumpkin. I love all the colors and patterns.


I wanted to make big eyes also from the scrapbook paper and each eye different of course. :)


The beak was made with 2 different pieces of  scrapbook paper so it looks like his beak is open. I thought that made the owl look more 3 dimensional.


I cut out some wings out of  scrapbook paper also. I cut 3 the same for each side of the owl's body. Initially I had only 1 piece of paper but then decided that it needed a little bit more..


I cut out some leaf shapes for the ears and added some greenery I found around the house for the top of his head and to hide the depression left from cutting out the stem... 


Oh, also, when I glued one pumpkin on top of the other I wound around some string to hide the gap.


Hope you are inspired to create something this week. Best wishes,



I've got some other fun stuff, too. Actually, quite a bit of fun things for Fall. Turkey pretzels, Turkey cheeseball, Candy corn Mason jar, beautiful succulents on pumpkins, and cute frozen banana bites that look like miniature pumpkins!
