OWLS, OWLS, OWLS!!

Standard

My sister, Carrice, loves owls. She has collected them for as long as I can remember. Through the years I have bought her a fair amount of them but now I have decided that I will make her some very unique ones. Here are some of my first attempts. As you can see they are made from dishes, old hardware, jar lids, etc. No rules here!! I thought I would post a few before I head back out to the shop and make some more. Don’t tell her, they are Christmas gifts!! I happen to know she wants to do a whole wall in her kitchen with Owls, so I plan to help out with that. 😀
