Heart Owl Valentine Tutorial!

February 6, 2013

I am so excited this is my first ever tutorial!  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to post a tutorial of a really cute idea that is super simple to make!  I got the inspiration for this cute valentine a few years ago from a book we borrowed at the library – so sad I can’t remember the name.

These sweet owls are super easy to make and so cute!  The kiddos can even help out!

Materials needed per owl:

  • Glue stick
  • Marking pen
  • 2 large hearts
  • 2 small hearts
  • 2 circles
  • 1 small elongated heart (not shown in pic above), but this could be optional
You can use shape punches, a craft cutter (I have a Silhouette SD which I love!) or just cut out the hearts by hand – whichever way is easiest for you!
On to how they are made!
Step One:  Flip the 2 large hearts over so the bottom point is on top.  Glue hearts together at a slight angle so the 2 points are showing slightly – they look like little ears.
See the little ears sticking up at the top!
Step Two:  Grab the 2 little circles.  Put glue where eyes typically are and add small circles.
Yay!  Your owl has eyes!
Step Three:  Add the beak.  I forgot it in the materials picture, but an elongated heart works best for the beak, or you could draw in a heart for a beak.
Step Four:  Grab the 2 small hearts, dab on some glue and add the feet.  Make sure the little hearts are turned upside down, so they look like little claws.
Step Five:  Grab your pen and add pupils to the eye circles and little marks on the wings to represent feathers.  Isn’t it so cute!
Step Six:  Flip your owl over and write a Valentine’s Day message.  I got the stamps at Pick your Plum (love that site) – so all I have to do is stamp the kiddos names and wahla!  Cutest little Valentines.
You can make a whole family of heart owls for Valentine’s Day!  Vary the colors, sizes, texture of the hearts  – the possibilities are endless!
Thanks for letting me share my little Valentine’s Day craft with you!
Thanks for the smile!
