Painted Owl Art

I am kind of what you could call an owl fanatic. I have loved them since I was a little girl. My house is covered in owl knickknacks and I even have an owl tattoo. Now that’s love. These painted owl art projects are actually inspired by one of my favorite owl knickknacks. This is a great one for the kiddos. We love how they came out. Each one is so different and unique in design.

What you will need:

Construction paper

Acrylic paint

Glue Sticks


Printable owl template


Print out our free printable owl template or make an owl design of your own. Use the template to cut the pieces out of construction paper. You can choose any color paper that you like.

Put your pieces on newspaper or disposable tablecloths. Painting the small pieces can get messy.

Paint each of your pieces using lots of colors and fun designs. We made a lot of random patterns on all of the pieces except for the circles. We made sure to make them look like eyes.

Glue your pieces together and be sure to paint on a beak or cut one out of construction paper.

After you construct your owls, you can stop there or go just a bit further and add in a simple background.

Cut a piece of blue construction paper in half and paint a branch onto the bottom of your paper. Cut a large yellow circle out of construction paper to make a full moon. Glue it to the top of you paper.

Glue your owl onto the branch and voila. Look how beautiful they all are. We are super excited about how cute ours came out and would love to see some of your creations. Share them with us on our Facebook page.
