The final layer to our front porch decor for this trick-or-treat season.
Every year I have lots of mums and lots of pumpkins and my lovely vines that grow up the porch columns. The last 3 years I've had the black trees lit up with orange twinkle lights. This year I've added the family of owls and they're
looking at you!
Once again I'm used the ever-versatile burlap. It's inexpensive and really lent itself well to owls. When stitching them up I left an opening on each side for the head so the fray would give the appearance of feathers. I cut circles of felt for the eyes and gave them candy corn beaks. I also used a round, foam stencil and only dipped half of it in the acrylic paint and then I daubed it on each owl belly for the ruffly feather effect. Finally I embellished the girlie owls with bows and a flower.
I found the big stick on the ground at the playground a few weeks back and it's hung using twine. The owls are hot-glued on and I sure hope they stay.
