Some of you are going to read this post and think, "Katie, you have too much time on your hands."
You might be right, but don't worry, school is about to start and that will be the end of time as I know it (at least as I have known it during this first summer in over ten years that I called my own shots and didn't have to go to work everyday...ahh..).
This project all started with an abandoned jar in the shape of a teddy bear. It once held animal crackers, and lived in my recycling for about a month. (This particular teddy bear is of the Target Brand Kingdom, Market Pantry Species, if you were curious.)
Corduroy-esk. Only this bear would have no place in my classroom. We are much too cool for bears, you see. We are into owls. There are owls everywhere, but those pictures will have to wait for another post.
So I pulled out some paper to match the color scheme of my classroom, and sat down to experiment. If all else failed, Teddy could go back in the recycling. Fortunately for him, it all worked out, even if he is dressed up as an owl now.
(Just kidding, I am just being lazy and avoiding the money loss that comes with a trip to a craft store.)
Next for some feathers to cover up the stickers on Teddy's tummy and back. I used a circle punch to punch out about 30 1" circles for both back and front. Then I layered them ombre style.
(sorry about the wet glue showing through. It did dry clear.)
