Today I’m sharing cute owl ornaments I made for my nieces.  These ornaments were so much fun to make and were inspired by the supper talented Jill from Homemade by Jill.

Owl ornaments using clay and buttons

Materials needed:

  • Sculpey clay
  • Felt buttons and black buttons for the eyes
  • Glitter Mod Podge
  • Yellow Foam sheets for the nose
  • jute rope
  • large drinking glass and small glass.  I used a shot glass because that was the smallest glass I had:)
  • large skewer for chest and making the hole at the top for the rope
  • glue gun and glue sticks

Step 1:  Roll out the clay and use the large glass to create the owl’s body.

Step 2:  Use the smaller glass to cut out a small piece at the top.  Then gently press in the small glass on each side to create the wings.

Step 3:  Use the skewer to create dots on the chest.  Then press the skewer all the way through at the top so you can hang the ornament on the tree.

Step 4:  Paint the owl.  I used two different colors for each owl.  Then I painted a layer of the glitter mod podge over the entire owl.

Step 5:  Once the that was dry, I glued the eyes on and cut a small triangle from the foam sheet for the nose

Step 6:  Thread the jute rope through the hole and you are ready to hang your ornament on your tree.

Such a cute and fun ornament.  Now Connor wants to make a blue owl for our tree so we will be making more this weekend.

Happy holidays!
