“Who, who, who loves you? Jesus is the One! Who, who, died for you? Jesus, God’s own Son! Who, who will take you to His home above? Jesus Christ, our Lord and King, He’s the One we love!”
A song from Child Evangelism
When I saw this owl made out of pumpkins, this little song played in my head! A sweet child’s song from Child Evangelism that I used to sing to my own children when they were small. A song also that I taught to my children in my preschool class years ago. A little song and a cute owl that perhaps may speak to your hearts and find its way into your homes as well this October!
I love to decorate my home for the seasons we are in! Just a little, nothing too complicated, but I like those who enter my home to know this home loves Jesus! It is a quiet testimony to Jesus that He is the unseen guest in our home.
Country Living.com is where I found the idea! They made this cute, cute owl that I just had to try to make! The owl is fairly simple to make and it is not too costly.
It is made of two pumpkins, a small one for the head and a larger one for the body. The two pumpkins are hot glued together. I then tied a narrow piece of ribbon [mine is black with tiny white polka-dots] that I had between the head and the body to cover the hot glue that showed through.
White cupcake liners are used for the white of the eyes and brown cupcake liners cut in half make up the eyelashes. The wings are made with both brown and white cupcake liners cut in half. Brown, black, and white construction papers are used for the eyes. The white construction paper circle is cut to fit the inside of the cupcake liner. I used a spice jar lid to make the brown circle and a dime to make the black circle. Black construction paper is used for the beak and the feet. No pattern; I just “eye-balled” these. No two pumpkins will be identical and each will have its own personality! These pieces are then glued together before hot gluing to the pumpkin.
I printed out the words to the song and glued them to a harvest-themed paper I had.
This was a fun project to make and one that makes me smile when I enter the room! I think it is so nice to find a way to decorate the month of October in a way that shows my love for Jesus to my grandchildren and to all who may enter my home. It also gives me the opportunity to teach them a new song! How do you decorate your home in early fall?
