Autumn Owl

I love making 3D and home decor items, but I just don't do it all that often.  I am going to try and change that.  I started last week by making the pumpkin.  This week I made an autumn owl-shaped lantern, which I am going to put on display with my pumpkin.

I used a cut file from Dreaming Tree.  It is called Hoot Owl Lantern.  It stands at just under 11 1/2" tall.  I used a tea light to light it up, but I think I will get a slightly larger candle for the future (I just didn't have any larger ones that were electric).

I put vellum behind the open grid-work on the body of the owl to soften the light.  I also did it because my card stock had a white back and I didn't want that to be seen.  I also chose to use a solid card stock for the eyes, rather than vellum.  If you were to use a vellum the light would show through the eyes as well.  

I added pop-dots to the undersides of the wings and then curled them for dimension.  I added a lot of gems and sparkly enamel dots as well.  I also used some Liquid Pearls for more detail.

  1. That owl is really cool. I think you should make more 3D projects!
