Cut off the bottom of your foam ball to create a flat edge that your ball can sit on. You may need to cut or shave off approximately ¼ inch of the ball.
Begin by cutting your felt into petal shapes for the feathers. You can use one color or many colors to create the feathers. Tip: You will need approximately 60 petals to cover an 8” foam ball.
Starting at the flat portion at the bottom of the ball, begin gluing felt feathers around the ball, making sure to overlap the sides slightly to provide the best coverage. Begin another row of feathers just above the first row, overlapping the rows in the same manner as fish scales. Refer to photo. Continue doing this until you cover the ball completely.
Using another felt color, cut out two large circles and two slightly smaller circles for the eyes. Glue the smaller circles on top of the larger circles. In the center of the smaller circles, glue a googly eye. Allow the eyes to dry for approximately twenty minutes before gluing to the owl.
Cut out a small triangle and two long skinny triangles. These will become the beak and the ear tufts. Glue the beak in the center of where you want the owl’s face to be. Next, glue the eyes directly above and on either side of the beak, overlapping the beak slightly.
To create the ear tufts, add a dab of glue to the widest edge of the triangle and tuck behind the eyes.
Allow your owl to dry for approximately for time recommended on bottle.
