Owl Burlap Fall Flag

The kids and I love creating holiday decor. Each piece is so special to us and something we end up using year after year. We made these adorable owls using an apple as the stamp. It was so fun for my daughter to turn an apple shape into a very cute fall owl.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    I first hot glued a wooden dowel to a square of burlap. This is a step for the grown-up as hot glue is, well, very hot!

    Emma chose a pretty fall-colored ribbon and cut two pieces for me to tie to each side of the dowel.

    Now it was time to get those apples out. We just happened to have a large and small apple so of course the kids thought a mama and baby owl would be fun to make.

  • Step 4

    We dipped each apple half into the paint and onto the burlap. Emma was very excited to lift them up to see the apple print she made.

  • Step 5

    We cut some felt into triangles and circles to create owl features, pipe cleaner snips for two little legs, and buttons to add some big owl eyes.

    Tacky glue worked best for us. The owl was coming together and looking very adorable.
