These wide-eyed birds make great additions to any home décor theme. In fact, owls as a design trend are known for their versatility – they can be trendy but classic, and retro but rustic. Haven’t incorporated owls into your home yet? It’s time to give a hoot!
During craft time. Instead of tossing your empty toilet paper rolls, turn them into paper owls! Take a few paper rolls and paint them bright colors with markers or paint. Then, use a black permanent marker to draw the owl features. Lastly, pinch one end of the roll down to create owl ears. That’s it! Enjoy your new owl décor.
On the walls. If you’re dreading repainting your entryway, consider going the wallpaper route instead. These days, wallpaper designs can range from mid-century modern to over-the-top faux bookshelves. Soaring somewhere in the middle is the owl pattern. If you don’t want these hooters covering the entirety of your walls, try the more subtle option of owl paintings or illustrations.
On the floor. Rugs do more than look nice under your feet. They dampen sound, clean your boots, add insulation and make a room feel really cozy! For a unique take on the classic rug, go for an owl-shaped option instead of the usual square or rectangle. Just be sure to clean your rug every once in awhile – they can become home to thousands of different species of bacteria if they’re neglected!
