Tangled Owls again

Tangled Owls are such fun to do. If you have been following my blog you will remember the owls I did last year. These are made with recycled materials - as I'm sure you can see, empty toilet paper rolls. All you need to do is push in one of the ends to make the ears. I used a Sakura IDentipen. It has two tips - a fine one and a broad tip. Then I added highlights with a white chalk pen.

The challenge, and fun part, is to create a different character for each owl. I started with the eyes. I did a little research on the internet to find images for cartoon eyes. That gave me a personality for each one. As I added the tangles I tried to pick ones that fit that personality. 

These are the ones that I did last year. I'm posting them again so you don't have to scroll back to find them.

And of course, a class picture.


  1. These are adorable! They'd be a nice activity for classrooms.
    Thanks, Sue.

  2. So much fun - & I love the class picture!!

  3. I love how they each have different personalities, and it's fun to look at the faces and patterns, to see how you did that….
