DIY Owl Place Cards and Free Printable

Sharing is caring!

Two weeks ago I shared with you all about a beautiful bird book I found at a recent flea market.




I am pretty sure this book has every, single type of known bird in it . . . so many beautiful illustrations!

A few pages towards the beginning of the book were devoted to illustrating different kinds of owls.  I thought these specific pages were perfect for fall–owls are a staple of fall decor.

A few of you were less than enthusiastic about the idea of me taking out book pages to sell as individual prints (which I completely respect) and offered the idea of scanning the images instead. Well, for the sake of total honesty I have to admit that I still did remove the pages from the book to use as individual prints . . . but I loved your idea of also keeping the images digitally through a scanner.

They are such great illustrations, I want to share them with you today as 3 free printables you can download for your own craft and decor uses.

I thought these images would be fun to use for custom table place cards.  It’s a super-easy project–just print off the page on card stock and trim around the owl of your choice.

I used card stock that had a pearl finish on it, so my owls have a little shimmer 🙂  A tree branch from my yard sawed into 2-inch pieces is the perfect, rustic base for each card.  Using a hand-saw, just slice a small groove in the top of each little “stump” for your owl to slide into.

I hope you enjoy the owls, and would love to know what ideas you have for creative ways to use these images!

Adorable! I use pig placecards. They were old stamps (the kind you ink) I found at a antique stall that I stamped, scanned and then reprinted. I need to do more! Thanks for the great idea!
