Owl Headpiece

Owls make for great costumes and costume accessories due to their cute nature, combination of colors, and design patterns that leave the possibilities endless. This owl headpiece is the perfect partner to an owl cape or top that make this costume simple, accessible, and adorable. I especially love the blanket stitch around the edges that give the piece a qualitative feeling that’s all seen in the details. Your little one will want to wear this long after Halloween’s over.

    Download your template and cut out the shapes. Your felt pack has a variety of primary colors; feel free to use any color combination you’d like. Use fabric pins or any other method to cut around the template on your felt sheets. You should end up with two pieces of each shape.

    Connect the two pieces of the headpiece together by using a blanket stitch. Start on the inside of one end so that the knot is hidden.

    Next, attach the brown cheek markings. Do not glue the cheek markings entirely; leave some room around its edges to attach the orange feathers later. Next, attach the eyes, the feathers around the eyes, and the nose.
