How To: Make a Wise Owl

What You Need
Brown long sleeve shirt and pants

Glue gun

Cupcake liners (in brown and gold)

Feathers

Glasses

Headband (in brown or black)

Wire

Ribbon

 

1. Fold cupcake liners in half (or cut them in half). Starting from the bottom of the shirt and working your way up, glue them to the shirt, layering them length-wise.

2. For the cape, apply liners in the same fashion, starting at the bottom edge of the cape and layering them length-wise as you make your way around the cape.

3. Hot glue feathers to the top of glasses for that sharp wise owl look.

 

How To: Make Headband
1. Bundle feathers together and wrap them with wire, followed by ribbon. Attach ribbon at the base of the headband securing with hot glue.  Wrap the wire securely around the headband.
