Our pinecone owl from last year is still a super popular post. And so we thought it was time to create another cute owl project! Our DIY cork owl is as cute as they come. A simple and easy kid’s craft, this is great for afternoon crafting on the run up to the holiday season.
These mini cork owls are simple to make once you have downloaded our pattern below.
We made this cork owl craft using a regular bottle cork and a few small pieces of felt in cream, orange, and a selection of browns. You can explore all of the felt in our online shop to find the colors you need. Or you can also use up old scraps of felt or fabric for this project if you want!
Once you’ve cut the felt pieces using our pattern, simply glue them onto your cork with a low-temperature glue gun or craft glue. Then add little black-tipped push pins for the eyes.

Wow, awesome idea and super cute! I have soooo many corks that I’ve accumulated over the years and didn’t know what to do with them! Thought of making a big “J” and putting it in a frame, however, now after seeing this, I’m going to also make the Owl Wreath … how I love owls! ~:O)
Love the idea of an owl wreath, how fun!

these felt creatures are too cute, and a great way to use these corks
So cute! And a good way to use those corks! Happy Halloween! ?
What a nice idea – decorative closures for bottles with homemade liquors, vinegars, juices, syrups etc.
A long cork as being used for wine bottles or these short ones, which you show here glued on a metallic closure – a nice decoration for home made gifts. The quince harvest was gorgeous – I’m canning lots of qince, making jam, jelly, juice, syrup, confect, chutneys, relishes and and and ….
I’m sure that cork squirrel, cork fox and others will follow – inspired by your pine cone animals
(referring to last line first) Hahaha. You are adorable. You never know with us. 🙂
Love your thinking to make them for bottle too.
Owl crafts certainly will never go out of fashion.
They’re too cute.
