Dollar Tree Owls

This template is really great for back-to-school crafts for kids and adults.  I created it by tracing around an owl that I bought from the Dollar Tree.   I then found some bottles with two different circular shapes to trace around to form eyes.  I made a beak and a hat for the owls as well.  To watch the process click the video below.
