MaterialsCraft Foam




Materials List

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Discs (8” and 10”)
  • Feather Boas: (2) Brown/Multi and (1) White
  • White Faux Fur: (9”x 4”)
  • (2) Large Silk Mums: White
  • Black Witch Hat: (6”)
  • (2) Orange Buttons: (1.5”)
  • (2) Black Half Round Eyes: 25mm
  • Acrylic Paint: Orange/Yellow
  • Sequin Pins: 3/4"
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun
  • Serrated Knife


  1. Cut out the face template and pin it to the 8” disc.  Use the knife to cut out the template from the foam.  Cut a small flat spot off one side of the 10” disc, this is the bottom of the body.  Glue the head to the front of the body slightly tilted to one side.

  2. Glue the orange buttons into the center of the mums.  Glue the black eyes into the center of the orange buttons.  Glue the mums snug against the foam, centered side by side on the face.

  3. Use the knife to cut the beak and the feet templates from the scrap piece of foam.  Use scrap pieces of foam as sanding blocks to “sand” the edges of the beak and feet smooth.  Paint the parts orange/yellow and let dry.  Glue the beak to the face centered below the eyes.  Glue the feet to the front of the body about 1” apart.

  4. Pin the faux fur centered down the front of the body draping over the feet.  Pin a length of white boa outlining the owl’s eyes and under the beak.  Pin lengths of brown boa to cover each side of the body and the top and sides of the head.  Pin two small loops of white boa in a “V” shape to the top of the head for the owl’s horns.  Pin the hat to the head.

This is so adorable. I didnt realize it was a flat piece on Styrofoam until I went to read the tutorial. It doesnt look it in the picture here. This would be cute any time of the year. Just make the hat removable. Then you could leave it as is, or add accessories that fit the season.

not real fur right?

That's correct! The white fur needed to make this owl is fake - Chelsea, Editor

This Halloween Harvest Owl is so cute! I really like that the pattern and pictures are right here and the pictures help make sure I'm doing it right! Thanks!!!! My daughter loves owls and I this this is a great one to make, now all I need to do is find all the items to make this. I'm thinking of instead of pinning on the faux fur and boa, I'll glue it on to make it safer when people touch it.. Thank you so much for this free holiday craft.
