Hi everyone! This is April from IlliStyle and I have a fun little craft for you! To make these DIY owl hand warmers, you’ll need:
Short Grain Rice
Peppermint oil (optional)
Flannel (1/4 yd will make approximately 12-14 owls/6-7 pairs)
Easy how to instructions:
*Optional: If scented rice is desired: Place rice and essential oil in air tight container, shake vigorously. Let sit 1-2 days Place flannel right sides facing. Trace owl from printable PDF pattern provided here
Cut out owls, keeping two pieces together, then flip so right sides face out. Sew Around edges, leaving bottom open.
Fill with scented or unscented rice. Stitch bottom closed.
Using a fabric marker, draw on big eyes and a beak.
Give a pair as a gift. Package as desired. Include instructions – Heat in microwave 1 minute and place in pockets to warm hands.
These little cuties were actually a baby shower favor I created for a dear friend’s newest arrival. They were a total hit, here’s a picture text I received from one of the party-goers after she used the Owl Hand Warmers on her morning run when she was on vacation in Mammoth, CA:
