I made one of these owls a couple of weeks ago for my son's graduation card. My twin decided that she needed 3 of them so I thought this would be a good time to share such an easy idea. I started by using 2 colors of brown paint on my sponge and made several ovals. I cut one out so it's a little bigger than my thumb. I added small circles with distressed (try using a make up sponge on your ink pad)edges for eyes. I like them a little cross-eyed. Then I glued on to a small square of paper, also distressed and added feet and a beak. Finally, a tiny square of color with some embroidery floss makes an adorable hat.
