Christmas is my favorite holiday, and decorating our Christmas tree is my favorite holiday activity. We collect all kinds of ornaments and I love pulling the bins out each year and remembering special events and travel destinations based on the ornaments we bought or received that year. So I was super excited to find out that Erlene from My Pinterventures was gathering up 80 (!) bloggers to participate in an Ornament Exchange. I was paired with Michelle from Our Crafty Mom, and it was easy to see why—we both love owls and the color purple! When I spotted some miniature owl ornaments at Hobby Lobby, this idea for a Wintery Owls Christmas Ornament popped into my head.
I thought a couple of owls would look so cute sitting on a branch, as if they were just hanging out, enjoying a wintery day together!
Here’s what I used to make my ornament:
- small owl ornaments or figures
- small branch
- faux greenery
- faux red berries
- twine or string
- hot glue
- Optional: glitter and/or faux snow. I was originally going to add some of these at the end, but decided it didn’t need it because the faux greenery already has some crystally bits.
I started by adding the faux greenery and red berries to a branch with hot glue.
Then I glued down two of the owls and added a loop of thick twine for hanging.
It only took a few minutes and this adorable wintery owls Christmas ornament was finished!
I love how it turned out, and a little birdie told me that Michelle does too (wink). There’s a good chance I’ll be making one of these for myself before Christmas gets here!
