Get inspired with owls

owl themed items including spoon rest, mug, bowls, pillow, owl cupcake set, metal owl figure Owls!

Owls seem to be everywhere right now. I don't shop a lot, so maybe they've been around all along? But I'm definitely liking them! The height of owl-ness for me was recently at Pier 1 Imports. They literally had owl everything. I especially enjoyed the owl spoon rest. The giant owl mug was a little tacky but I could definitely find a spot for the owl pillow. 

Getting inspired by owls, I decided to make a phone cover I saw at Westelm. I don't like to sew (mostly because I don't have patience for it) but this guy was easy. I glued most of it. The material is felt. The closure is hemp twine and two buttons, one at the front and one at the back. Mine is the one with the orange button. The inspiration one (from Westelm) is the top right. I think mine's cuter!

Other future craft projects I'm considering:

  • Kitchen towels made from old 100% cotton sheets or pillowcases. Make a motif with a stamp
  • Owl magnets 
  • Owl gift cards 
  • Owl labels for gift-giving packaging or for homemade wine labels
