My eldest son is the only one in our household who chooses to support a local team rather than a London based one as the rest of us do. In Sheffield there are two teams that divide the city – Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United. His choice is Sheffield Wednesday who are on the opposite side of the city to us, and known as The Owls. Their fortunes are not so hot at the moment and last week they sacked their manager. I doubt very much that The Owls feel like celebrating, unlike these party guys:
The idea for these came after I had made my circus themed decorations. Originally I was going to attach a hanging loop, but in the end decided to use pegs so that they could perch on the branches of the Christmas tree or anywhere else you might choose to put them.
The fabulous owl images are from The Graphics Fairy – there is a fantastic selection to choose from. I printed them out on to card and cut them out. To size the hats, I sketched them out on plain paper, using the individual heads as a guide. Once happy with the designs, I cut them out from glitter paper and glued them to the owls heads.
I glued the peg to the back and then decorated each owl’s hat and added glitter to the bodies. Each owl seems to have a different personality!
I love how these turned out. I think I might do a Halloween version when it comes around again. My top tip for making these – do not stand on them whilst the glue is still wet!
Thanks for buzzing by.
