Welcome to the wonderful blog community of art teachers. I look forward to following your blog (and thanks for following mine). I love the owl idea...I am going to "Pin" it.
Thank-you Kristyn. I am very excited about starting this blog and being a part of the blogging community. I found out about Pinterest from your blog:)
I love this idea... fantastic.
Love these! Just a couple questions, did the kids sew them shut?Did you use real leaves for the wings?
Thanks! I had the students first use a glue stick to glue the outer edge together. Then I paper hole punched around the edge. Students then used yarn to weave in and out of the holes. Yes I did have the students use real leaves. I sprayed all of the leaves with a gloss finish. I don't think I would use real leaves next time. I would probably have premade leaves cut out and students would use watercolors to add the fall colors to the leaves.
Why would you not use real leaves? I LOVE the owls and will be making them in a few weeks but I am not sure if we should use real leaves. What would you suggest (it is for a grade 2/3 class)? Thanks!
Thanks, that helps!
What grade level did these great owls?
