Happy Owl-o-Ween!!!!!!!


The door into the old oak tree had opened - the excitement grew! Who would come to give the little owls their treats - and what would those treats be! The little owls, all dressed up in their Owl-O-Ween costumes, had been arriving in Owl Forest all month - now the wait was almost over!

And then someone stepped into the doorway - it was the Wise Twin Owls mother Nana - with a bowl of treats for the little owls. Lovely sparkly Owl-O-Ween green suckers - a favorite in the Owl Forest! One for each of the little owls! A happy "Hoot Hoot Horray!" was heard from all directions! The waiting was over - they were all so happy!

Each little owl was given a sucker and they put them in their little pumpkin treat bags. The party was now about to begin! Such happiness!

Everyone had a treat! The scary grocery bag, the ballerina, the ghost, the pumpkin, the cowboy, the wizard, the Pilgrim turkey, the cupcake, the pirate, the vampire . . . .

the hula girl, the Christmas tree, the clown, the 1950's starlet, the Mardi Gras butterfly, the candy corn, the Rudolph, the Dracula, the mummy, the bee, and the green M & M.

The Owl-O-Ween poster of 2010.

It started with the large oak tree home of the Wise Twin Owls and the grass, pathway, moon with witch and two bats - on a background of silver stars in a black sky. Two extensions were added onto the original poster - one on each side - about half way through the month, including two more tree trunks with the spooky eyes of the creatures living in them.

Over the month's time were added the two Wise Twin Owls, three more owls on the card above the poster - Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil, a sign on the tree, a door, twenty-one little owls in costume and the Wise Twin Owl's mother owl whom they all called Nana. Twenty seven owls - twenty-two different costumes (including Nana's) - twenty one little pumpkin treat bags - a bowl for the treats and twenty-eight individual suckers.

What a fun month this has been! I hope that you enjoyed taking this trip with me! :<)

Thanks for stopping by today to see the grand finale of the little owls trick 'n treating at the home of the Wise Owl Twins on Owl-O-Ween Eve in Owl Forest! :<)

It has been great fun to create all of these costumes for the little owls. For those of you who asked, I drew patterns and then cut them free hand as the ideas came to me. Thank you to all of you who followed this little story as it unfolded and who wrote such kind comments and e-mails! I loved hearing from you and along with my friends here stopping by each day to check out who had arrived in Owl Forest during the night, to hear from you helped keep me motivated! :<)

I hope your evening was fun! Happy Owl-O-Ween from all of us! :<)

Hi Barbara! OMGoodness! This is awesome! Where has the month gone? I see from all of the latest owls that I haven't been visiting as often as I was planning. I looked back at your latest postings to see the owl additions and to get a closer look at each of them. They are each just the most creative things I've ever seen done with little tiny owls! I'll bet your neighbors love passing by your door to see this each day. That little 50's owl it the "bomb",and that "scarey grocery bag" cracks me up! Fantastic job Barb! Happy "Owl-O-Ween"!

Oh, thanks for sharing this fun Halloween "story" from the owl forest. It's been so much fun watching all the fun costumes. How creative. TFS.

Wow! Lady, you are amazing!!! I am hoping to eventually have a full year of SU Owl critters including an indian, choral singer, snowman, cupid, leprechaun, bunny, graduate, Uncle Sam, bride, and groom so I cam going to stop back to your blog - I'll bet you get them prefected before I do. Mine are way less details but then I am making 160 of each for coworkers. thanks for sharing.

This couldn't have turned out anymore fantastic! I loved seeing each owl come to life! I love Halloween, and I'm sad to see it go. I'll surely miss your little owl friends and wondering which one you'd come up with next.

Michelle said...

Hi Barbara

Wow, this Halloween scene is so wonderful. I love each of the little characters and I think I would be hard pressed to pick a favourite now.

Kind regards

Michelle :-)

Such an amazing project and soooooooo fun! Your skill in helping these little owls dress themselves up (for we all know, wings make it hard to do up buttons and zippers!) is AMAZING and I so wish I lived near you so I could have visited your door in person every day to meet each new visitor. Thanks for sharing this with us.
