Owl Bunting – A Free Crochet Pattern

Owl Bunting

I made this beautiful bunting to add to my door in the garden.  This would make an outstanding Christmas Owl Bunting if you changed the colors.  Perfect for those dull areas that need some color, birthday themed parties, or for the person in your life that adores Owls. Can you imagine this done in white with green eyes to make it look like a Snow Owl, with some bright curlicues and band? The options on this are endless.  Have fun with this and show me your pictures!!!
