Tutorial: Create a Cute Owl Desktop Holder with Recycle Items

I thought that this will be a fun activity to do with your kids on a Saturday. A while back, my Little Princess had an assignment of bringing something to school that she made with  recycle materials. We decided for a cute pencil display that her teacher kept. 

Is a very fun activity to do with your little ones and the outcomes are fabulous. This project took us few day, as we're doing it in the afternoons, after school -that's the reason the models hair has a mind of their own on the pictures. 

Take a look at our project's final result. Fabulous, right? Well, lets do this...


5 empty bottles of water
1 carton for sodas (the one's that the fast foods handed when carry-out)
Ribbon or the decoration of your preference.

What to do?

Step 1:

Cut the top part of one of the water bottles as showed. Just the perfect amount to leave part of the narrow area. 

Step 2:

Make sure you have the proper colors, before start to paint. 

Step 3:

Paint the bottle, keeping in mind that this will be the owl's body.

Step 4:

As I have not talent (what-so-ever) drawing, we asked Daddy to draw the owl's silhouette.

Proceed with painting it after the base color is dry (to avoid a mess).

Step 5:

Paint the face details.

Step 6:

Use the carton cup holder and put your painted owl in the middle of it.

Use the other 4 bottles and cut it by the length that you prefer.

We decided for 2 pencil holders and 2 clip or tiny things holder.

Paint them and wait until they are dry for decoration. 

Step 7: 

Decorate and enjoy!

If you decide to make this fun project, I would love if you share it with us. Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions. 

Don't forget that you still have time to participate at Violet's Buds Fun Giveaway. Will run until midnight! 

Enjoy your Saturday!

Un beso,
