I did it by myself! Lots of fun ideas for handycrafting with children of all ages: step-by-step plans for a variety of occasions and seasons with valuable glueing tips, so nothing can go wrong!
Material and resources
- Coloured paper (various colours)
- UHU stic
- UHU Patafix
- UHU Glitter Glue
- Googley eyes
- Dried leaves (Alternative: artificial leaves)
Tip: If you make several owls, you can, for example, hang them in the window, decorate your room with them, or attach them to a small branch as an autumn decoration.
Draw the circles and triangles for the body and eyes. Cut out the templates for the body, the beak and the eyes of the owl. You then trace these onto the coloured paper (Note: 2 each of the templates for the eyes) and cut them out.
The leaves are now glued onto the body of the owl. Use UHU Patafix for this. This generates a beautiful 3D effect.
Tip: if you do not have any dried leaves, you can simply use artificial leaves for this.
Once you have glued the individual parts of the eyes together, again attach these to the body of the owl, along with the beak, which you have also cut out as part of Step 1. To do this, just grab hold of the UHU stic.
Lastly, all that remains is the owl's eyes and feet. Again you can use UHU Patafix for this, to create a 3D effect.
For example, you can trace your way along the veins of the leaves or make the owl's eyes shine by applying UHU Glitter Glue around the edges.
|And that's your Autumn Owl finished.|
