Andrea's Owl Brooch DIY

Surprisingly there's only own guest post on owls, but maybe that's good because I don't see how any other owl could've topped Andrea's tutorial!

You're probably tired of people saying that Autumn is their favorite time of year, so I'll get it out quick--I love the cripsy yellow leaves, the blustery wind, a warm bowl of soup and a cup of tea in the afternoon, a warm scarf, and all the fall colours. In fact, since we've already had a forecast for snow in NY, it's all come and gone a bit too quickly. Anyway, I was really excited to make something for Laura's Autumn Party so here are some Blue Eyed Owl Brooches! -0v0-

I always buy up craft supplies when they're on sale and couldn't resist the Fimo section this time. You only need a few simple supplies for this easy Owl Brooch DIY.

I molded the clay into an owl shape with my fingers and thumbs until it looked like this.

Then paint a few layers of paint and add a nose, eyes and some feather details.

Wear these with your favorite Autumn colors and you can even add an owl mask.

Sarah from One Owl Please has a wonderful free printable owl mask available. So if you still need a Halloween costume or you like to dress up all year round, this is perfect for you!
