With another round of snow falling outside, what better time for another winter craft. As much as I want to dive into spring and flowers, our Cotton Ball Snowy Owl Craft seems more appropriate. It’s just another way of nature letting me know that we’re still in the middle of winter.
But that’s OK, because our Cotton Ball Snowy Owl Craft is quite adorable. I love how the cotton balls make the owls poofy, fluffy, and whimsical. Still have some extra cotton balls left over? Make our Cotton Ball Paper Plate Penguin Craft, too!
For this Cotton Ball Snowy Owl Craft you will need cotton balls, cardstock in blue, brown, white, and scraps of orange or yellow, medium googly eyes, brown and black sharpies, star stickers, scissors, and glue.
Cotton Ball Snowy Owl Craft
- Cotton balls
- Cardstock – dark blue, brown, white, orange, yellow
- Googly eyes, medium
- Brown and black sharpies
- Star stickers
Begin with a full sheet of dark blue cardstock.
Cut a rectangle from the brown cardstock that’s a few inches shorter than the width of the blue cardstock. Also cut out a few smaller rectangles.
Glue all in place.
Gather 4 or 5 cotton balls, per owl.
Apply a circle of glue at one end of the brown cardstock. Lay the cotton balls in the glue, forming into position.
Glue googly eyes.
Cut two wing shapes, like flower petals, per owl out of white cardstock.
Make a few wavy lines with the black marker.
Glue in place along the side of the owls.
Also cut a simple triangle out of the orange or yellow cardstock. Glue in place for the beak.
Apply a few star stickers in the sky above the owls.
Finish your snowy owl winter scene by forming some detail lines on the branches with the brown sharpie.
So fun, and a great winter craft, even when we may wish it wasn’t still snowing outside. For just those days, though, be sure to check out more of our winter crafts at Our Kid Things!
