How to make an Owl Wreath

With just a few supplies from a craft store, anyone can make this simple owl wreath!

I have to admit, I'm patting myself on the back for this idea. Walking down the Fall crafts and floral aisle at Hobby Lobby inspired me after I started to notice how many different items could be used to create an owl wreath. I searched the net, Pinterest, and Etsy to see if there was something similar out there. As of right now, I don't think there is. And every time I look at this owl, he makes me giggle! 

If you hit up Hobby Lobby during their 40% off Fall Decor, Crafts, Floral, and Party sale, this guy doesn't cost much at all. And before you purchase a new twig wreath, check to see if you have one that could use updating. Or, make a stop at Goodwill where they always seem to have some. You can always rip off what is already on there like I did. 

So here is what I used:

  • Old twig wreath that needed a new life
  • (3) faux feather boas (depending on the size of your wreath you may need more)
  • (1) foam gourd 
  • (2) mini corn picks 
  • (2) long feather picks (you could easily get away with just one)
  • (2) foam pumpkin picks (any color you want!)
  • (1) round wood circle (found in the crafts aisle at Walmart for $0.97)
  • twine
  • paint, paintbrush
  • wire cutters
  • hot glue gun
  • felt for the eyes
  • paint pen

I started out by removing the stems from the pumpkins so I could give this guy eye balls with the felt. I twisted the wire from the pumpkins around the twig wreath and also hot glued them to the wreath and to each other. Careful that you use the glue on the pumpkins where it will not be seen. The hot glue will slightly melt the pumpkins. Then, hot glue the gourd to the pumpkins and the long feather picks to the tops of the pumpkins. I simply twisted the wires from the mini corn around the twig wreath but you can also hot glue them too. 

Finally, after all of the hot glue is dried, wrap the boas around the wreath and add eyeballs with the felt!

Originally, I was going to leave it at that because he sure looked good. But I did decide to add a little sign that says "Whooo's There?" just because it's so darn cute. Paint the wood circle whatever color you like, and use a paint pen to write on the wood. 

I'm not sure how this guy would do on an exterior door without a screen door. We have a screen door and replace the screen with glass during the cooler months here in Wisconsin. I will be hanging mine on the door so the wreath will be protected from the elements by the glass on the screen door.

That's a beautiful wreath you've done! Very clever to use a boa--I wouldn't have thought of that. This fall decoration is unlike what we usually see and I love it. Pinned!
