    Printable Owl Mobile

    Posted by  ·  September 30, 2010

    Here is a beautiful owl printable from Kate Petty, of Mini Eco.

    Kate writes…

    Hope you like these little owls. I reckon they cheer the place up a little and would make the perfect decoration for a kids room. As promised I have created some templates below for you to print out.

    How to

    You will need:
    ♥ A printer to print out the pdf’s below.
    ♥ Colored paper
    ♥ Scissors
    ♥ Thread
    ♥ 1/8″ craft punch (optional)

    1) Begin by printing your owls onto some coloured paper. In the picture above you can see that I printed the red owl onto pink paper, the orange owl onto light orange paper, the green owl onto yellow paper, the blue own onto green paper and the purple owl onto blue paper (hope that makes sense).

    2) Cut out the owls. There are two on each pdf so that you have a back and a front.

    3) Glue the two sides together with a glue stick.

    4) Put your owls in between some heavy books for a couple of hours just to make sure they dried flat and smooth.

    5) Punch out all the dots around the owls eyes using a 1/8″ circular craft punch – this is entirely optional.

    6) String together in any way you fancy!

    7) Leave a comment if there are any problems and I’ll try to help.

      I'm going to do this for my daughter and my niece, owls seem to be the flavour of the month at the moment.
      They are everywhere.

      Would LOVE to see one printable in yellow to be able to complete a rainbow mobile!!! (I know I'm finding these way late.) I would kill for a single yellow print-out, if only you just sent it to my email directly!

      Either way - I printed all, and love them!!!

      Great post, thanks. I'm looking for some really good organic non-chemicals to use for our everyday house cleanings. But, I haven't found anything worth while yet, so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

      Did it! Uses lots of ink, so I made the hubs do it at work. :) Thank you so, so much!

      Hi. I love this owl mobile and want to make it for my 3 month old. I just cant figure out how you strung it without using a hole punch. Please clue me in because yours looks so nice and clean.

      These are too cute! And I like that they get printed onto colored paper, so they don't use up as much ink :-) Thanks for sharing...
