We live in the country, in North Dakota. Think strong wind and snow will fall soon.... Which means no fragile yard decorations... Ane we live a long a fairly busy road with traffic passing by at 60 miles on hour so if I wanna impress the neighbors
I decided I wanted to add a little halloween to my fall display. So as I thought about what I had available, I came up with this idea for an owl...
I used packing tape (should hold when it freezes overnight) and took the corner of a black garbage bag and taped one corner over the middle of the top of the bag. Then I pulled two corners around front and down a ways to make wings. I cut circles from the ends of a bag of bird feed for the eyes. I also taped a bit around the corners of the white bag so the ear tufts stayed a bit more pronounced, And although it does not show up well, I used duck tape to make some wavy designs on the front for chest feathers. Quick, easy and kinda cute! The ghosts are a white garbage bag cut in half with some fiberfill stuffed and tied in the corner. I tied bolts to the bottom to try and keep them from totally blowing away but the wind is pretty strong today.
I'd love to know if you make yourself a yard owl and see the picture!
