Here is what you'll need:
This owl has a secret compartment. Write a message on a scrap of paper, open the head of the owl and tuck it inside. Close the head. No one will guess that when you hand your friend the owl you are actually sending a secret message hidden inside. Some of your friends might want to join you for this project, so they have an owl to send, too. "You're a HOOT!" was the birthday message Dad, Keith LaClair received.
"I thought this was an easy and fun craft!" said Lynda Hannan.
I have found that old neckties are plentiful if you just let people know you are looking for them. Lynda Hannan reported, "The neckties were very plentiful. John went a little nuts on the 'Paisley phase'--yikes! I was ready to cut up 10 to 12!" This proves my theory that if you need some old neckties, ask a wife!
You can make a larger owl by using the wide end of the necktie. To make an owl magnet instead of a pin, add a strip of sticky-backed magnet to the owl and stick it to the refrigerator. You can also string a 2-foot piece of ribbon or string through the owl and wear it as a necklace.
