The Owl and the Penguin went to see…

November 4, 2012

… if they could be married even though they were birds technically unlikely to meet anywhere other than slightly tenuous blog posts!

Last week Amelie wanted to make an owl out of Hama Beads. We played around at the design for a while and never got it quite right. Looking back at it now, he needed some ears!!! However, we did come up with this owl design which we quite liked.

Here he is in printable form.

What we did discover is that with very little effort, you could turn the same pattern into a very creditable penguin. Two for the price of one!!!!

Making them also inspired me to try some other owl patterns and I came up with these.

These first featured over on our themed craft site, Simple Crafts.

We thought featuring an owl (nice and Halloween/Autumn) and a Penguin was the perfect way to go from spooky to sparkly as Winter and Christmas beckons! And just in case you need a few more bird pictures, here is our Hama Bead Robin again too. You can make him, and the small owls, on a hexagon pegboard.

We provide all these resources free of charge. If you are buying Hama Beads, we’d very much appreciate you buying your supplies at our shop. CraftMerrily is a small family business and we’d love to have you.
