Hoo Doesn’t Love Corrugated Cardboard?

As I was browsing through a JoAnn’s store flyer a couple weeks ago, I saw this cute metal owl lawn stake. I love the corrugated metal look. And I love owls. So, I decided to try make some of my own. As I did not have any corrugated metal just laying around I needed to make some adjustments.

Because cardboard can’t logically be used as garden decor, my project got a little smaller.

I loved the way this little guy looked, so I went ahead and finished decorating him and gave him some friends.

I made them into little hang tags that could be used on gifts, hung on furniture knobs or even used as bookmarks.
