Retro Owl Art
Time: 2 hours
Canvas or poster board
Paint of your choice
recycled fabric and scraps (mine are old fabric swatches from a curtain order book)
1. Prepare your canvas. My mother actually picked this one up at a yard sale (painted as shown) for $1.00! It would be very simple to make this yourself though using coffee cans to trace the circles.
3. Use the pattern to replicate on different fabrics until you have enough to cover your canvas
4. Now for the fun part, move the fabric trying new patterns until you are happy with the look.
7. Let dry then hang up!
