Kids can make a cute Paper Bag Owl Craft with thie printable template, easy directions, and video tutorial.
Children can make a brown barn owl, white snowy owl, or use a combination of colors to create an owl craft that’s truly unique. Craft time will be a hoot!
You can use the template as many times as you like to match a theme or season. Simply change the color of paper bag to make a brown owl, snowy owl, or colorful owl. We like crafting after we read our favorite owl books like Owl Babies and Owl Babies.
The craft template comes with 1 Craft Template to make a single craft and a Classroom Set Template so you can print multiple crafts at one time.
We have the template for you, just grab a paper bag and a few crafty supplies and get ready to have fun together.
I finally figured out that my favorite type of bird are owls. It may have to do with Harry Potter, or the fact that they are cute with their big eyes and are fascinating with their silent flight.
Why is Crafting with Paper Bags Fun?
The fun thing about crafting with paper bags is you can put things inside the bag to give your craft a three-dimensional look. You can also fill the paper bag with treats, or add it to your lesson about owls so your students could put all their educational materials inside it to take home like maybe an owl pellet or too (or maybe not, lol.)
What Color Should My Owl Be?
You can use brown or white paper bags and solid colored paper for a more traditional owl or use colored paper bags and scrapbooking paper to make a zany owl. You get to choose. Thank goodness paper bags and paper come in all colors!

Owl Template and Directions
Paper Bag-Lunch Size (Any color)
Colored Craft Paper
Optional: Filling for paper bag (We used 2 grocery bags, you could also use magazines, newspaper, packing pillows, or other recycled material)
Printable directions are included with the template. Watch our video tutorial.
Print the owl template body and wings out on craft paper. I printed the template out several times and let the kids mix and match the colors to make a multi-colored owl.
Fold the corners of the top of the paper bag in. The top of the paper bag will look like a point. This will be the owl’s beak.
Fold the point down and staple the right and left corners to secure the bag closed.
Use the markers to decorate the owl template. You could get even more creative with extra craft supplies like feathers, puff balls, or other crafty things you have.
Color the beak orange.
Cut out the eyes and glue the white circle to the largest black circle, then glue the smallest black circle on the top.
Cut out the template and glue it to the paper bag. The tummy goes on the middle of the bag. The right and left wings go on the right and left of the front of the paper bag. The eyes go near the folds at the top of the paper bag.
The fun thing is your child can glue the wings up, out, or down and the eyes looking in any direction to give their owl character.
