Owls are fairly traditional Halloween fare but I must admit I’ve got a bit of an obsession with them in general (hooooooo… hasn’t?) and I’ve been collecting them on my owl board on Pinterest for quite a while. All the cute little chaps on there inspired me to have a go at some Hama Bead patterns in bright colours and these are the results.
I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for the one with his wings up and I think I might tweak the mummy owl a bit at some point but over all I was quite happy with them. They definitely show a few different owlish attitudes 😉
I’ve drawn up the patterns for them which is free to download for this site by right clicking and saving. The patterns are all worked on a large Hama Bead Hexagon board and can be done in any colours you like. I’ve chosen bright dark colours accented with their pastel conterpart and then white and cream tummies (I altered mummy a bit when I created her pattern) but you could do browns, whites and blacks for more realistic owls.
I’d love to see what you make with these; do leave me a comment and a link if you try them out and feel free to share them on the internet via Pinterest etc
