Owl pumpkin carving ideas
Whether you are looking for a spooky owl or a fun colorful owl, I’ve got two ideas to share with you. The owl on the right I carved many years ago using a stencil from Good Cook. The owl pumpkin on the left is one that I made recently. I used paint and fall leaves from our backyard to make this colorful owl.
Stencil owl painting
Speaking of stencils. You can also use stencils for painting owls too. It’s a great way to make a beautiful owl stencil painting and you don’t need any artistic skills. I show you how to make paintings like this one at Kids Activities.
DIY owl pinata
This homemade DIY owl pinata is perfect for a woodland, Harry Potter, or even a Halloween party. I made this one for the twins’ Harry Potter birthday party a number of years ago. I filled it with candy and Harry Potter LEGO.
Watercolor coffee filter owls
