We’ve made a brown owl and a pink one, but there really is no limit to colors you can use.
To make the eyes stand out, we used leftover cork – however this can easily be skipped.
How to Make Toilet Paper Roll Owls
What you need:
- toilet paper roll
- acrylic color of your choice
- color paper
- white paper
- circle perforator
- black liner
- craft knife
Step by Step Instructions
Paint over the toilet paper roll with acrylic color. Let it dry.
Using the cutting knife, cut two cork circles.
Punch a bunch of circles with the circle perforator.
Take the toilet paper roll and fold the top.
It should look like this.
Apply some glue on the cork circles and glue them as eyes.
Fold each of the paper circles in half, then put some glue and fold the half circle in half again.
You should get a triangle pizza-like shape.
Apply some glue over the toilet paper roll …
… and start arranging the triangles from the bottom up.
Make three or four rows. Use whichever color paper you like.
Punch two circles with the circle puncher and fold them in half.
Those would be the wings.
Glue the wings to the owl’s body.
Cut two small circles out of the white paper and glue them on the corks.
Take the black liner and draw two eyeballs.
Cut a tiny triangle shape out of the color paper and glue it to the face under the eyes.
That will be the nose.
Where will you place your owl now?
If you have a yard and a tree with a hole in it, you can put it right there.
