Hybrid Handmade Home - How to Make an Owl from an Egg Box

I saw this....

..... and decided it was a good project for a rainy school holiday day!

After scrambled eggs for lunch...

we got stuck in with the scissors, paint and sparkly bits!

We were joined by two more eager owl makers from down the road and happily settled in for an afternoon round the kitchen table.

We added 'cereal box' glasses - because no self respecting owl would be seen without their glasses!


  1. Why is making owls froom egg cartons not a more widely spread 'go to' rainy day craft?! cx

  2. Have to say - it is MOST genius - as soon as you cut the two top cups off - your like - ohhhhh, Owl, hiding in my egg box my whole life, never knew it was there till now.

  3. I am going to have to do this with my nieces - they name animals by the sound they make. An owl is a "hoo". A horse is a "neigh" get the drift...

  4. I think you could also make it into a fox...think that will be our task on the next rainy day (scrambled egg will need to be on the menu though)
