3D Origami Fun!
Sure, owls found in nature aren’t bright blue and neon pink, but sometimes it’s fun to mix things up. This woodland creature is very popular in kids’ gear now, and this design is perfect for fall or Halloween decor, either for everyday use or for a party. The finished 2.5" tall Owl’s ears and nose add to her silly temperament.

Key
Upside-down V: Smooth side facing out (These pieces will not be visible when the structure is complete since they serve as a foundation for the structure to be built on)

Right side up V: Rough side facing out

Star symbol: Placement of eyes and nose

    The pink pieces will make up the belly. Each piece added to the structure should connect 2 pieces from the previous row. Glue as you go.

    For the ears, insert the pieces with the smooth side facing out. The ears build on the previous row and connect 2 different pieces, just as you’ve been doing all along. The diagram shows the placement of the pieces. Don’t forget to glue in place!

    Take your white and black paper for the eyes and cut them into circles (small circles for the black, bigger circles for the white). Glue the black circles within the white circles (feel free to make them cross-eyed, crazy-eyes, or whatever you want!). Use hot glue to attach the eyes (see the diagram for placement).
