Make Your Own Toilet Paper Roll Owls

This summer we spent 3 weeks in Utah visiting all of our family. I’ll do a super-fun recap later, but just know that I made some pretty awesome crafts while we were there. Gotta get my creative-fix in, right?! One of them ended up being these adorable Toilet Paper Roll Owls.

Look at that cute little guy – such a fun, feathery roll of color! And really, who doesn’t have a dozen or more empty toilet paper rolls laying around? I save basically all of mine, since you never know when a neat craft opportunity like these Toilet Paper Roll Owls will pop up!

Supplies

  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Colored paper of choice (for feathers/wings/body) – I used plain color for the body and wings, and patterned for the feathers
  • White paper
  • Black paper
  • Yellow or orange paper
  • Dots, jewels or something for the eye dot
  • Scissors
  • Tape and/or glue

Directions

  1. Fold the top and bottom of your toilet paper roll so they arch in/down, as shown. Make Your Own Toilet Paper Roll Owls / by Busy Mom's Helper #craft #Owl #ToiletPaperCraft
  2. Cover the body with colored paper (I did plain, not patterned, for the body). Tape or glue it down nicely on the top and bottom, as well. Cut a little heart-shape out of yellow or orange paper for the feet and attach it to the bottom of the body, so it sticks down. Make Your Own Toilet Paper Roll Owls / by Busy Mom's Helper #craft #Owl #ToiletPaperCraft
  3. Cut out a lot of feathers from the colored (patterned is what I used) paper in little half-circle type shapes. Begin at the bottom and work your way up, so each new layer covers the tape/glue of the one below. Don’t do straight rows, but make it a bit random to add more texturing to it. Make Your Own Toilet Paper Roll Owls / by Busy Mom's Helper #craft #Owl #ToiletPaperCraft
  4. Keep on feathering, keep on feathering…. Make Your Own Toilet Paper Roll Owls / by Busy Mom's Helper #craft #Owl #ToiletPaperCraft until you’re almost to the top, but not quite! Cut out long rounded-off wings and attach one to each side of your owl.
  5. Cut a little yellow or orange triangle and put it as the beak. Cut out large white circles, then smaller circles for the eyes and overlap them a little bit. Make sure you can still see the cute little ‘ears’ poking at the top.Make Your Own Toilet Paper Roll Owls / by Busy Mom's Helper #craft #Owl #ToiletPaperCraft
  6. If you want to (I did!) add a little jewel or some type of accent dot in the eyes for some fun. If you want the feathers a little more ‘fluffy’, just gently bend the bottom ends of each feather upwards.
