How to make an easy owl mask

At the Just So Festival we took part in a Wild Rumpus parade, joining the {winning!} owl tribe. The girls loved making their costumes and dressing up with a whole group of other owls, big and small, so much that I thought I’d share how we made our easy owl masks. Watch out for some more owl crafts over the next few days too – wings and bunting are on the way!
