This owl ornament caught my eye. After reading through the instructions I realize how easy it would be to make even for a beginner as all stitches are single crochet. A little poly stuffing, some felt to back the black button eyes and the little decoration comes to life. I will have to make several for a family of owls.

This is a very unique little ornamental owl. Owls are pretty popular now or have they been popular for a while and I am just noticing? Not sure but I know I have seen more items recently that feature owls on them. With the coloring on this owl it does not have to be limited to a Christmas ornament. This could also be used now and in the Fall hanging from a window.

These owl ornaments can easily be turned into Christmas ornaments! They are pictured with a pine cone, but I think it would also really cute with a bell instead, or a spring of holly or maybe even some pompoms. Owls are a very popular thing lately and these would almost certainly sell very well at craft shows!
