Halloween is so fun for crafting with the kids. You can basically turn any characters into spooky cute creatures in our case, these Halloween Paper Tube Owls! Make a mummy, bat, skeleton and pumpkin owl!
The designs were inspired by this clip art we purchased of Halloween Owls. We turned them into our own 3-D versions so fun for Halloween crafting.
What do you need to make Halloween Owls?
These adorable Halloween owls are so easy to make, all you’ll mainly need are colored paper cardstock, paper tubes, glue and scissors.
We created a quick templates of parts we mocked up for our examples, but you don’t need it to make these. You can definitely create your own wings, eyes, etc, depending on the final look you want. Our crafts are always meant to inspire but making your own is the fun part of crafting!
