Vintage Owl Wall Art
The Owl Embroidery Kit is a great way to create your own vintage owl wall art. This simple woodland themed artwork kit comes with a a simple instruction booklet which teaches you how to embroider paper, the simple stitches used for the owl and where to start in making this large owl wall art. It's a bit like doing dot-to-dot but with wool rather than a pencil, with the precise placement of the dots on the printed paper making it easy to achieve a beautiful finish. It is suitable for a complete novice as everything is fully explained for a beginner embroiderer. Read our blog post, Make Your Own Embroidered Owl and watch the video showing how it's made!
The piece of owl art is A3 in size and is printed on museum quality paper which has a watercolour like texture. The pressed astrantia flower branches are high definition, digitally printed images of pressed flowers, that look very real. The paper is soft and durable making stitching the paper extremely therapeutic. As it’s worked all in one colour it also allows for a lovely rhythm of stitching without lots of stopping and starting.
Each kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a hard backed envelope, branded with the product image, making it ready for gifting.
Simple Stitches For Embroidering Paper
This owl art activity uses a range of embroidery stitches. A woven wheel stitch sometimes known as ‘rose stitch’, ‘woven wheel stitch’ or ‘wagon wheel stitch’. A simple backstitch worked in rectangular patterns, a fan pattern and an extremely fun turkey stitch to make the fringing.

Displaying Your Artwork
For slightly three dimensional work like this owl embroidery, I love to frame with a double mount to give a sophisticated finish.
