Embroidery Hoop Owl

Happy September! I’m welcoming in the new month and the new season with this cute Fall Owl made  with buttons, burlap, fabric, and an embroidery hoop! Really quick to put together so you could make lots of owls in different sizes! How about a whole owl family for your mantel or wall decor?!

– Embroidery hoop. The one I used is 5″.
– Favorite Findings Buttons (affiliate links to specific buttons below) EXCEPT the daisies for the eyes. I couldn’t find them online :( I purchased them at Jo-Ann Fabrics. They are Favorite Findings Dazzling Daisies and come in a pack of 12.
– Fabric square or quarter. (link to the one I used below)
– Burlap to fit in hoop
– Hot glue gun

Set burlap in hoop and tighten as much as possible. I put the hoop screw on the bottom because I thought it mimicked little branch that the owl is perched on :)
Cut two wing shapes out of your fabric and start arranging your buttons. I lucked out and had a 3 hole orange button that worked well for the nose. Two small orange buttons for the feet, brown buttons for the front feathers and Large buttons + daisy buttons + small black button for the eyes. I used two wood buttons for the ears but you could use any buttons for that or leave off the ears all together.
You COULD sew all the elements down…which was what I was going to do originally. But then I got impatient and decided to hot glue everything :)
I trimmed the burlap around the hoop edge and glued that to the inside of the ring as well.

Whooo is the cutest Fall owl around? This guy!
