How to Make Egg Carton Owls

I saw these owls on Debbie Clement's Pinterest page and just had to make them!  What an amazing collection of children's art ideas.  If you have never checked out her page check it out here.
The actual idea comes from Mollymoo blog. They make a cute decoration for Autumn or Halloween!

-egg carton

First draw an owl body like this on your egg carton.  Cut it out. We used cardboard cartons because they were easier to glue together and paint.

Next cut out two egg sections and leave one of the dividers to create a beak.

Now you have 2 parts to glue together. After they are dry, paint and decorate with feathers or whatever you like

Here are our finished owls. We had a lot of fun making these. Hope you do too.
