While looking for some DIY owl Christmas ornaments I stumbled upon these tiny owl crafts by Sarah Goldschadt. She has been making ‘The Owlies’ for quite some time, but was just recently featured on Martha Stewart’s craft blog The Craft Dept. where she thankfully wrote up a detailed tutorial on how to make these little guys yourself. Her creations were even featured in the craft book Microcraft, where all of the projects are smaller than a spool of thread. Cute!

For those that are looking for a quick fix for their tree can pick up some pre-made owls at her shop here.

Simply use an adhesive spray on your favorite dried foliage and press to the glass. These would look great in a Thanksgiving centerpiece! For full details click on the link below.

I’ve been fond of white pumpkins lately, and I really love the simple way O&DE managed to turn a few objects into a very simple and clean Thanksgiving centerpiece. Using a combination of real and painted pumpkins, the author positioned the set on an old table runner and sat one of the gourds on top of a decorative candle holder. What a good use of stuff you may already have!
