Santa Owl

Today I'm starting 24 days of handmade ornaments.  I've been having lots of fun putting this together and I can't wait to share all of the ideas with you!

I'm so excited to be sharing my first ornament for you.  I was inspired by my owl card from a couple weeks ago... and decided to make a Santa Owl.

I started with a paper pattern... I just folded a piece of paper in half.

Next I cut out a tummy, eyes 2 hat pieces and a beak.

Just start sewing the pieces together...

Next you stuff it with fiberfill.

I added googly eyes and a little fuzzy yarn to mine.  I also glued on ricrac and wings.

Next he needed a little card to go with him.

I used the same basic shape as the ornament with a little less embellishment.

Now it is all set and ready to be gifted.  Tomorrow we will make an ornament craft kit for the little girl in your life.  xoxo  Jenni
