Owl crafts for kids are fantastic fun for Autumn and Winter when the nights are drawing in and we might actually get to see or hear a real owl if we are lucky. This Paper Cup Yarn Wrapped Owl Craft is adorably cute and I couldn’t wait to photograph them to share with you!
These yarn wrapped owls are so colourful and fun and great for building fine motor skills. If you’re looking for an easy preschool owl craft these paper cup owls are a total hoot!
This is a wonderfully simple owl craft for toddlers and preschoolers. It’s so tactile and bright and cheerful! I was inspired to make these paper cup yarn wrapped owls after seeing some gorgeous woven owls by Sarah Delahoy Art on Instagram. I loved the yarn textures of her woven owl crafts and wanted something similar but really simple for preschoolers.
Yarn wrapping around a paper cup is perfect for little hands and gets to use the lovely textures and colours of yarn in a really simple way. I hope you enjoy this super quick and easy owl craft idea too!

How To Make Yarn Wrapped Paper Cup Owls
1 – Tape the end of your yarn into the inside of the paper cup at the back, by the seam. You can cut a long length of yarn or just use it straight from the ball. We chose to use gorgeous Rainbow Yarn because it gave us lots of different colours without having to swap yarns.
2 – Wrap your yarn around the paper cup as many times as you like. Secure the end by taping it inside the cup as you did in step 1.
3 – To make the owl’s beak cut a triangle of yellow cardstock and glue it on.
4 – We made the owls eyes out of craft buttons stuck onto rounds of white cardstock. Together they give a lovely wide eyed appearance.
5 – Finally finish off your paper cup yarn wrapped owls by tucking some craft feather wings under the yarn.
I hope you like this adorable paper cup yarn wrapped owl craft as much as we do. Such a lovely Autumn craft idea for kids.
