How To:

Cut out feet for your owl from a scrap of felt or cardboard.  Glue them to the bottom of the pine cone.  To help your owl stand up, try using cardboard under felt for stiffer feet.

Poke small pieces of fiberfill or cotton into all of the spaces in the pinecone.  Use a toothpick to help get into small cracks.

Make a beak, wings, and eyes for the owl from scraps of felt or paper.  Use white glue to attach them to the pinecone.  If you have wiggly eyes, use them!
