These owl rocks are just so cute, they would be really fun to create and use in the garden, or even for a paperweight on your desk. When I was a kid, we painted rocks to look like ladybugs. I think I still have one somewhere. We put a piece of felt on the bottom to use them as a paperweight. Fun project that brings back some good memories. I may need to make some of these with my sister to bring back our childhood.

How cute! I don't know that I could paint an owl that looked like one of those, but it would be fun to try. I think it would be cute to put one in a potted plant of some kind. Tiny ones like that could be made, with the help of a Dremel tool, into a child's necklace.
