Pinecone Snow Owl

These cute owls were the perfect craft to put together on a day with two-foot-high snow drifts outside our window!

Our inspiration came from the picture of this adorable little guy.

All we needed were pinecones and cotton balls to recreate him indoors, and luckily I had both on hand.

Tearing apart cotton balls always feels so fluffy and fun!

Travis helped push the cotton into the pinecone, until we had mostly filled it in with white.

As an alternative, we tried using a white feather boa for an even fluffier look, winding it in between pinecone sections.

These owls turned out so fluffy though that they looked more like snow gerbils!

To finish our owls, we added googly eyes and little beaks cut from brown felt.

They’re nice and warm inside and away from the snow!
