Picture of Recycled Owl Organizer
My name is Talya Martin, I am 9 years old and some day, I want to be an artist. My stepmom told me about this contest because we like doing crafts together, so we looked around at our supplies and got inspired to make these cool owl organizers out of a recycled soap bottle and some materials we had around the house. We made a bunch and now all of our hairtyes and pencils have a home!

If youve got 15 minutes, you can make one too. Just follow these 4 easy steps...

For the belly, take your fanciest piece of construction paper and draw a big upside down triangle of about 3x3 inches with rounded edges. Cut it out and set aside.

For the wings, draw two symmetrical dome shapes of about 4x2 inches. cut them out and set aside.

For the eyes, stack as many colors as you want, but we only used two, plus the rhinestones. Draw two circles of about an inch for one color of paper. With another color of construction paper, draw two smaller circles. Cut them out, stack them, and glue them together. you can add rhinestones or buttons to fit on the inside if you want (we did)

note: the size of your cutouts will depend on the size of your bottle. our bottle was pretty big: about 6x4 inches.
