Whooo doesn’t love a fun owl craft? This Coffee Filter Watercolor Owl Craft is one of our favorites, not only because they turned out so cute, but you get to play with watercolor paint in the process, making each one unique.
If you see from our watercolor palette, we’ve done a lot with watercolors over our crafting life. I need to remember to pick up some new colors. And a craft like this is such a fun way to paint without having to worry about staying in the lines, so it’s great for all ages.

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
- Coffee filters
- Cardstock – brown, purple, pink, orange, yellow, etc.
- Googly eyes, large
- Colorful diamond or triangle buttons
- 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.
Once your area is ready, begin painting with whatever watercolors and in whatever pattern you’d like for your owls.
Let the coffee filters dry.
Once the coffee filters are dry, cut a crescent notch from the top of the coffee filter.
Now, glue onto a sheet of brown cardstock.
Adhere googly eyes.
And a colorful diamond or triangle button beak.
Then, cut two wing shapes out of a colorful sheet of cardstock. We folded our sheet in half and cut, to make them both the same size.
Glue the wings in place along the side of the owl.
Whoooo’s ready for some fun crafting?!
