Toilet Paper Roll Owls: Step by Step Tutorial
Preparing the Paper Roll
Step 1: Cut a strip of coloured paper to the size of the paper roll with enough width to wrap around the roll.
Wrap the paper round the toilet paper roll and secure with glue.
Creating an ‘OWL’ Shape
Step 2: Start from the middle of the top of the roll and gently push inwards, this will create two pointed edges.
Repeat the step with the bottom of the roll.
Step 3: Create a pair of feet and attach them to the bottom of the paper roll.
Add Paper Feathers
Step 4: Using coloured paper, add a line of paper feathers around the middle of the owl.
Step 5: Add a further line of feathers above and below the middle line.
The shape and size of the feathers can be determined by your Arty Crafty Kids.
They could be complete ovals, triangles or a mixture of both. Alternatively, feathers could be added with finger tips.
Step 6: Cut out two large white circles and use a marker pen to add the pupils.
Step 7: Fold a piece of paper in half and starting from the folded edge, cut a triangular shape for the owl’s beak.
Completing the Toilet Paper Roll Owls
Step 8: Complete the owls with a pair of wings, big eyes and a beak!
