This Scrap Paper Owl Craft is not only a simple craft for fall but could also make for a really cute back to school craft, too! And, it’s a great way to use up any scrap pieces of paper you may have.
I have a thing for owls. They make some of my favorite craft projects. A few of our past owl crafts include an Aluminum Foil Owls Craft, Paper Plate Owl in a Fall Tree, Fall Leaf Owl Craft, and Craft Stick Owls. We do love owls.
Our Scrap Paper Owl Craft is super simple and we have an Owl Template Free Printable to make it even easier. As for supplies, you’ll need paper, scissors, and glue. See? Easy! For the paper, you will need larger sheets of cardstock for the main owl body, but use up any colorful or interesting scrap pieces of paper you have on hand for the area inside the body. This can be scrapbook paper, even magazine or newspaper pages would be fun. Whatever you have available! To finish, add a craft stick.
