My 9 year old daughter inspired this sweet project. The other day she came home with a cute paper roll owl she made at school. I told her I loved it. My daughter suggested we make more but with a Valentine’s Day theme – “you know with hearts and we can hang it on our kitchen light.” My first thought – that’s brilliant.
My second thought was how awesome it is to have a creative daughter. I appreciate it because I love making creative crafts just like her.
So, off I went to Michaels craft store to find Valentine’s Day themed paper.
The materials I used to make these Valentine’s Day Paper Roll Owls are toilet paper rolls, Valentine’s Day themed scrapbook paper, red cardstock paper, orange cardstock paper, googly (wiggle) eyes, pencil, scissors, glue, paint brush, circle puncher, heart stickers and ribbon.
My daughter helped me make these cute owls.
First, I cut scrapbook paper to fit the paper roll. I glued the paper onto the paper roll. I used Mod Podge as my glue.
I found it easy to apply the glue using a paintbrush and hold the paper roll by putting a few fingers inside it.
To make the ears, push down slowly on one end of of the roll (see picture above). Repeat on other side.
I made the eyes by using googly eyes (size 14mm) and gluing onto red paper cut into circles. I cut a beak using orange paper. I glued the eyes and beak on.
I then made the wings. I cut out heart shaped wings and glue to the sides of the owl.
I attached ribbon to the top so we could hang our pretty Valentine owls on our kitchen chandelier.
I also placed one heart sticker on each owl to give them some extra love.
What do think of our Valentine Owls? I think they are adorable. Let’s give my sweet daughter a big cheer. She is thrilled to have her idea featured on here.
