Crochet Baby Owls That Look Adorable as Ornaments

In case you hadn’t figured it out by now, we’ve sort of got a bit of a thing for owls. But then again, who on Earth could possibly resist anything as cute as these little guys, right?

The very best craft projects are always those that make versatile little goodies. And when we say these amazing little crochet baby owls are versatile … well, let’s just say you better believe we mean it!


There’s so much you can do with these crafted cuties, chances are you’ll find yourself making dozens of them. From key chains to stocking stuffers to party favors and right through to Christmas tree decorations, anywhere there’s the call for an added dash of joy, you cannot go wrong with these. And we must say thank you to Josephine Wu for the cool project.

What’s more, the addition of a pin or clip is all it takes to make yourself a bunch of hair accessories, or perhaps a cute little decorative touch to add to a hat, scarf, bag or anything else you fancy – even the sky isn’t the limit for a cute baby owl!
