These felt owls decoration by The Sweetest Journey on YouTube are so adorable and festive for the Fall season. I love how simple it is to make these, and they look like they can be found in Home Goods. I think they’re so adorable and a fun DIY project to work on. It seems easy and quick to make a few of these owls in one sitting. I would adore making these and gifting some for my friends. Plus, they do well on the countertop or anywhere in the house. These felt owls would add a nice, sweet Fall touch to my home.



  • Felt Sheets (Dark Brown, Light Brown, Burgundy)
  • 2 Wooden Buttons (2cm)
  • 2 Black Beads
  • Natural Raffia
  • Polyester or Cotton Filling
  • Hot Glue, Craft Glue, and/or Felt Glue
  • Needle & Thread
  • Scissors


First, start off by getting the owl’s eyes ready. Cut the raffia into small pieces about 1 inch in length, and put small beads of glue on the back of the wooden buttons. Attach the raffia pieces onto the button so that they are fanning out around the button. Next, add two black beads on the flat back of each button. Set these aside and let them dry while working on the body of the owl.
