Owl Picture Frame

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

NOTES:

MATERIALS NOTE
Yarn amount is sufficient to make multiple Frames – you’ll just need additional cardboard and buttons.


FRAME
Make Base
From cardboard, cut the following: 2 circles, each 2 in. (5 cm) in diameter for eyes
One circle 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) in diameter, then cut this circle in half for wings
One 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 in. (8.5 x 12 cm) rectangle for frame backing
One 1 in. (2.5 cm) wide strip, 9 1/2 in. (24.5 cm) long for easel

Print out owl shape template. Cut out shape, then cut out the center portion of the shape for the Frame opening.
Lay template onto cardboard and, with a pencil, trace around shape onto cardboard. Cut out cardboard shape.

Wrapping
Frame
Cut a 24 in. (61 cm) length of A to begin, then cut additional lengths as needed. Apply a small amount of glue to both front and back of one section of owl shape. Wrap section with A, going through center opening and around Frame. Continue applying glue, wrapping with A, and cutting additional lengths of A until entire Frame has been wrapped.
Wings
Apply glue to both front and back of a section of one cardboard wing semi-circle. Wrap section with B. Continue applying glue and wrapping with B until entire semi-circle is covered.
Repeat with second semi-circle.
Eyes
Apply a small amount of glue to one side of a cardboard eye circle. Glue C in a spiral over one side of the circle.
Frame Backing
Glue one strand of A along edge of both long sides and one short side of cardboard frame backing. Remaining short side of frame backing is the top.
Allow all pieces to dry.

Assembly
Lay wrapped owl shape face down. Apply a small amount of glue to yarn strand on cardboard frame backing.
With the top (unglued) edge of the frame backing piece towards the top of the owl shape, lay the backing piece over the cut out opening on the back side of the owl and press firmly to adhere.
Glue eye circles to front of owl, then glue a button onto each eye circle.
Glue a short length of D, folded into a loop, between eyes.
Glue wings to owl.
Lap one end of cardboard easel strip slightly over other end (so strip forms a loop) and glue.
Apply glue to about 4 in. (10 cm) of strip. Center strip onto frame backing piece, with beginning of glued section at bottom of backing piece, and press firmly to adhere.
Allow Frame to dry, then insert photo through unglued top edge of backing piece.

Owl Picture Frame Reviewed by Joyous on 2010-08-22 ***
I made it with felt on cardboard and found that to be a lot easier.
I also went on the hunt for different animals ie from colouring books etc and started making picture frame animals to suit the person. Buying old frames and recycling is the way to go!
Joyous
