Recycled Pink Feathered Owls

 I recently did this post on Tuula's blog, The Thrifty Rebel  for "Think Pink Mondays."  I am one of the Pink Ladies!

For the post, I wanted to make something fun and whimsical.  You know I love making owls, as seen herehere, and here. And I've had on my mind to make an owl using feathers.   So why not use pink feathers.   How cute would that be.  It was so easy.  I keep empty plastic bottles in my stash.  You never know when and what you can make with them.  Using empty salad dressing bottles,
 I cut off the tops, and replaced the opening with v shaped cardboard.
I lightly painted everything pink since the plastic was so shiny.
And then added tacky glue to attach the feathers. 
I cut four stem wire strips for each foot and wrapped wire around to hold in place and then painted them pink also.
I got so carried away with applying the feathers and eyes that I forgot to take pictures.  You can see how I actually added the eyes in the above links.
My hands were a mess from the glue and feathers.  But I'm loving these cuties!


Whoo! Whoo!



Pink is the word . . .



is the word . . . that you heard!

What's the word, Birds?
What a HOOT!!!
Thank you so much, Tuula for inviting me to guest blog!
