    This is the cutest Christmas ornament I have ever seen! I love owls and I had one hanging on the mirror in my car but it was too big and kept fallinf off. Now I can make one of these and it will never fall off! :D

    The owls could be stuffed with dried herbs, such as lavender, and used to freshen the car, closet, drawers, suticases, etc. I wonder if it would work to fill w baking soda and stuff in the fridge? I guess potpourri would work 2…

    I love the owls! I think this would also be great if made larger, and add a drawstring at the bottom… use it to hold plastic bags! I think I’ll add a strap, and use zippers to close the beak; it would be a great purse for my daughter!

    Oh, it’s gorgeous! I can envision a tree with a big family of multi-coloured little owls in it (I might have to get a tree this year). It would be so sweet…
