Top Tip! As the feathers naturally curl slightly, use a heavy object such as mug to place over the feathers once you have glued them down, to ensure they remain flat and stick securely to the felt base.
1. Start by drawing your owl shape on a piece of paper.
2. Cut this template out and pin it to your felt sheet. Then cut around this template to create your felt owl.
3. Starting at the base of the owl start applying the feathers using tacky glue. If the feathers are quite long in length, these will need cutting down, simply snip away the top part of the feather.
4. Continue to work your up the owl in rows until completely covered.
5. Leave to dry.
6. To make the beak cut a circle from tissue paper (or card if your prefer) roughly 12.5 centimetres in diameter. Fold in half once, so you end up with a semi circle, then fold this in half so that you end up with a quarter circle, and then fold this in half to form a crease in the tissue paper, open out the last fold, you should no have a quarter circle with a crease running down the middle.
7. Attach the beak to the owl by running a line of glue along both edges of the quarter circle, position the beak on the owl so that the point is centrally placed between the eyes.
8. Leave to dry.
