Instructions

  1. On photocopier, enlarge Body/Head pattern at 110%. (Other patterns are already full size.) Cut out patterns. With Make It: Fun® STYROFOAM™ Disc in original plastic wrap, position Body/Head, Face and Wing patterns to fit on Disc. Use marker to trace patterns onto plastic wrap. (Note: This keeps ink from directly marking foam.)
  2. Use craft knife to score Disc on drawn lines, going through plastic wrap into foam. Remove wrap and use Make It: Fun® Foam Knife to cut on scored lines.
  3. In well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area, spray with two light coats: Body/Head – Turquoise; Wing – Tangerine; and Face – Flannel Gray. Also spray 1″ and 1 1/4″ diameters buttons Turquoise. Let dry.
  4. Refer to photo. Starting 1″ above bottom of body, use straight pins to temporarily attach a strip of yellow rick rack horizontally across body, cutting so that ends are long enough to wrap around to back. (Don’t glue yet.) Similarly position and use straight pins to attach orange rick rack about 1″ above first row, wrapping ends to back. Continue to temporarily add yellow, orange and yellow rows. When satisfied with placement, use glue gun to spot glue in place and remove straight pins.
  5. Position face about 1″ below curve of head and aligned with right edge. (See photo.) Hot glue in place. Referring to photo, position wing with tip pointed up and just touching face. Hot glue in place.
  6. Use loops of tape to attach Beak pattern to yellow felt. Use scissors to cut out along pattern edge. Remove pattern and tape. Fold beak in half. Slightly pinch together at center and hot glue corners of beak to lower face. Hot glue largest black button on largest turquoise button; then remaining black button on turquoise button. Refer to photo to hot glue eyes with largest eye on left side.
  7. For hanger, find balance point at top of owl and mark. At mark use craft knife to make 1/4″ long, shallow, horizontal slit. Carefully insert knife blade into slit, angled up toward top and remove. Slightly separate curved ends of paper clip 1/4″. Insert shorter, rounded end up into slit, creating hanger loop with longer ends of paper clip. (Hot glue if loose.)
