I am a sucker for a hand-print craft. They are the sentimental ones that you love taking out to decorate with year, after year. This Paper bag owl craft is a great fall hand-print craft to make with the kids.
Paper Bag Owl Craft
I made this little owl with my four-year-old, and I just love it. We used coffee filters that we colored for fall as the wings.

Are you ready to make this cute owl craft? Let’s make sure you have everything you need:
- coffee filter
- spray bottle with water
- paper lunch bag
- filler – like cotton, newspaper crumpled up, or pillow filler
- foam paper
- large googly eyes
- Using markers – We first colored 2 coffee filters with fall colors
- Then we took them outside, and on a protected surface…we sprayed them with water to blend the colors
- While the coffee filters dried, we stuffed a paper bag about 3/4 of the way up
- I then folded the top of the paper bag, just like you would a paper airplane, with the edges folded together to make a point, and glued to secure it
- I then folded the point down
- I traced handprints on the now dry coffee filter and cut them out
- I used orange foam sheets to cut out a beak, belly, & feet
- Then I cut some big green circles out of green foam – I used a toilet paper roll to trace circles
- I used giant google eyes to glue onto the green circles
- Then I assembled everything as shown
Happy Fall Y’all!
