Whootastic Pinecone Owls

Easy Owl Pinecone Craft

Whootastic Pinecone Owls

We are very fortunate to have a family of ‘Owls’ (Tawney Frogmouth – Nightjars) call one of our palm trees home. They roost there all day before going to hunt at night. Our neighbour on that side also loves them – so we decided to make these as a gift for her.

They were so easy and so much fun to make!

All you’ll need –

3 Open Pinecones (if they’re shut just place them in a low heat/warm oven to open)

White craft stuffing (cotton wool would also do the trick)

1 sheet of brown felt

Large googly eyes

Scissors

Glue Gun

A stick (if you want them sitting together on a ‘branch’).

Start by ‘stuffing’ in-between the spikes on the pinecone, we used a small stick to jam the stuffing in.

Miss M got a bit too much 'fluff' on hers lol.

Cut a pair of wings for each Owl using some felt and also cut a single triangle out for each nose.

Using the glue gun carefully attach the wings to each side, the eyes and finally the nose. Once these have dried add some glue to the stick and hold the owl in place until it dries.

There you have it, Three Wise Owls…now we just need to name them…

And these are our real ‘owls’…

Although related to owls, frogmouths are more closely related to nightjars and oilbirds.
