Owls just happen to be my favorite animal to craft and Halloween just happens to be may favorite holiday and this super fun no-carve owl pumpkin combines both in one project. The best of both worlds! A fun and easy activity to create with the kiddos in an afternoon!
Here’s what you will need:
• Kunin Classic™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Walnut Brown, Prickly Purple, Orchid, Pumpkin Spice, Gold and Cream
• E6000 Fabri Fuse Glue
• Faux Pumpkin (mine is approximately 12” tall by 6” wide)
• Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
• Buttons – Black (2)
• Permanent Fine Point Marker
Here’s how to make it:
Download and print OWL Patterns Cut out all patterns. Trace and cut all patterns on Kunin Classic™ Felt according to the instructions below with a permanent marker.
Walnut Brown – 2 wings and 1 large eyes; Pumpkin Spice – 1 medium scalloped eyes; Prickly Purple – 1 small eyes, 2 chest feathers and 16 wing feathers; Orchid – 1 chest feathers and 16 wing feathers; Gold – 2 talons, 1 beak and 1 head feathers; Cream – 2 single eyes.
Cut out all felt pieces with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines, so that your finished project is neat and clean.
Assemble the pieces with Fabri Fuse Glue. Attach the feathers randomly to both wings. Stack the owl face in the following order: Walnut Brown, Pumpkin Spice, Prickly Purple, Cream and two black buttons. Attach beak at the bottom and head feathers to the top to complete the owl face. Set aside for approximately one hour to dry.
Attach the remaining pieces and parts directly on the faux pumpkin with hot glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo below as your guide. Embrace the ridges of the pumpkin and use them to create added texture to the owl.
I hope you will use my no-carve owl pumpkin as a jumping off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity and create something to celebrate Halloween! And if the owl isn’t your spirit animal, then create a fox, racoon or deer. The possibilities are endless!
