How to Make Felt Owl Animal Pencil Toppers
This adorable animal craft felt pencil topper is perfect for all younger preschool and school aged kids from Kindergarten to grade 4 or grade 5. It is simple to complete and the owl template is fun to use with felt to cut out animal crafts and craft projects.
Gather all of the supplies listed above.
Print off paper template.
Next, cut out the Owl Pattern by placing the owl pattern pieces over the top of the felt sheets in the color of your choosing. Using your scissors, cut along the solid lines to cut out the pattern pieces.
Fabric scissors work better when cutting small felt pieces, but standard sharpened scissors will also work. These scissors should only be used by adults or by kids with adult supervision.
After you have cut the felt into pieces, it’s time to start glueing them together. Preheat the glue gun if you are using one. Standard fabric glue or regular glue can also be used.
Start by Applying a bead of glue along the outer edges of the smaller body piece (the small light gray cut out) leaving the bottom without glue.
Press the prepared owl front piece to the back piece and press in place until the glue sets.
Carefully glue the smaller felt pieces (the owl belly, eyes and beak) to the largest felt owl piece pressing in place.
Next, add glue to the larger charcoal colored back piece of the felt owl. Remember to not add glue in the lower middle bottom of the owl where you will insert the pencil.
Now, attach the rounded back piece to the back of the owl and allow the pencil topper to dry completely.
Now you have an adorable finished owl felt pencil topper!
