Looks like junk...right?
Here is how I use this "junk" to make one of my most popular christmas ornaments!
First I cut the owl out of clay.
Then I use a paper template...
and a glue stick cover...
to create the owl's eyes.
I use a part from a broken pen to continue outlining the eyes.
An old peanut butter jar lid makes fantastic little wings.
I use a pottery tool to press in some feathers...
and another tool for the eye dots and beak.
And finally, a straw to make a hole for hanging.
Clay + old junk + creativity = groovy little owl ornaments
The owls can be found in my shop (20% off until Monday).
I created this post to give you a peek into my creative process. This is NOT meant to be a tutorial, or a means to make it easy to copy my work. Please respect that! Instead, I hope this inspires you to find some junk laying around and create something groovy with it :)
