Scrappy Owls Scripture Reminder!

Scrappy Owls Scripture Reminder!
My friend and I made some darling little owls to serve
as reminders to read scriptures every day.
They turned out so cute!
I cut down a 2 by 4 into 5 inch pieces.
Traced a curved line on the top edge...
And used a bandsaw to cut that edge.
Then we sanded the rough edges.
Pretty cute already!
After sanding and wiping off the dust,
we painted!
Some aqua, blue and some pink!
Let them dry completely.
Then we cut scrapbook paper about 1/4" smaller than
 the face of the board and glued it on.
 Then we cut a different scrapbook paper belly for the owl...
no pictures...refer down to the next one.
Next the eyes.
I used 1 1/8" in white, 3/4" in blue and 1/2" circles in black.
Just used a glue stick to layer them together...
with a little yellow diamond shaped beak.
(see the striped belly?)
Then we went over everything with modpodge.
And stuck a little poem about scripture reading on the back!

Repeated 9 times!
Turned out great!
Love it!
They would make a great Halloween Decoration too!
