To make our Coffee Filter Watercolor Owl Craft you will need white coffee filters, watercolor paints, brown cardstock as well as colors for the wings, large googly eyes, colorful diamond shaped buttons, scissors, and a glue stick.

Make this Watercolor Owl Craft

Supplies needed:

  • Coffee filters
  • Cardstock – brown, purple, pink, orange, yellow, etc.
  • Googly eyes, large
  • Colorful diamond or triangle buttons
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

Begin by getting your area ready for watercolors. We used an old cookie sheet. Whatever you use, the color will seep through. We then transferred our coffee filters to clean paper towels for drying. And also wiped our cookie sheet clean after each use.
