-Supplies-

18 1/2″ of 3/8″ Chocolate Chip Solid Grosgrain

8 3/4″ of 3/8″ Pecan Solid Grosgrain

18 1/2″ of 3/8″ Light Ivory Solid Grosgrain

1″ of 3/8″ Orange Solid Grosgrain

Metal Clip

Scissors

Glue Gun

Glue Sticks

Woodburning Tool

Begin by cutting and sealing all your ribbon lengths.

You don’t absolutely need a woodburning tool, but it makes ribbon sculptures a lot easier!

If you’re planning on making a lot of ribbon sculptures, I highly recommend investing in a woodburning tool.

For the owl’s body you will need one 5″ length of 3/8″ Chocolate Chip Solid Grosgrain, one 4 3/4″ length of 3/8″ Pecan Solid Grosgrain, and one 4 1/2″ length of 3/8″ Light Ivory Solid Grosgrain.

For the owl’s head you will need one 2″ length of 3/8″ Chocolate Chip Solid Grosgrain.

For the owl’s eyes you will need two 4″ lengths of 3/8″ Chocolate Chip Solid Grosgrain and two 7″ lengths of 3/8″ Light Ivory Solid Grosgrain.

Also cut one 4″ length of 3/8″ Solid Grosgrain to line the clip with.

Line up the ends of the ribbon you have cut and sealed for the owl’s body.

Secure the ribbon layer ends together with hot glue.

Move on to the other end of the ribbons.

Because the three ribbons are different lengths you will need to adjust them so the ends line up.

Secure the ribbon layer ends together with hot glue.

It should look like a “U shape” at this point.

Glue the end of the 2″ length of Chocolate Chip Grosgrain to the left side of the “U shape.”

Glue the other end of the 2″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain to the right side of the “U shape”.

Now you’ve got a cute little owl body!

I used ribbon to make the owl’s eyes.

I love how large and “owl like” they turned out!

You could also use googly eyes; that’s your call.

To make the eyes with ribbon you simply begin rolling one of the 4″ lengths of 3/8″ Chocolate Chip Solid Grosgrain and gluing as you go.

Glue and roll, glue and roll….

When you reach the end of the Chocolate Chip Grosgrain glue on the end of the Light Ivory Grosgrain and continue rolling and gluing.

Secure the ribbon end and admire your eyeball!

Repeat these steps with the remaining ribbon and make another eye for your owl.

Houston we have eyeballs!

Line your clip with the 4″ length of Pecan Solid Grosgrain and glue the eyes in the middle of the clip.

Apply hot glue to the tops of the eyes.

Find the center of the owl’s head and attach it to the tops of the eyes.

Add a little glue to the sides of the owl to secure it in place.

Cut and seal a little triangle of the Orange Solid Grosgrain for the owl’s beak.

Attach it to the base of the eyes.

Now that you’ve made one owl ribbon sculpture you’ll want to make a whole flock of them!

I thought the owl would be something fun and different to give my girls for Valentine’s Day.

I know, I know, you wouldn’t think that owls and Valentine’s Day would go together, but I made it work!

It’s all about the word play.

“Whooo Loves You?”

“I Do!”

OR

“Owl Always Love You!”

I even made a little pink owl for my girly girl!

I can’t wait to give them to my girls on Valentine’s Day!

They have plenty of bows, but they’re always excited to get a new one.

Happy ribbon sculpting!

Have fun!
