A collection of Owl crafts

The Owl is mentioned 17 times in the Old Testament, with the verse from Isaiah 34:15 being a good example.

“The owl will nest there and lay eggs, she will hatch them, and care for her young under the shadow of her wings; there also the falcons will gather, each with its mate.”

DIY Leather sandals

diy-leather-sandals-399x599

This is a cute craft from Dollar Store crafts blog and found here.  Surprisingly the term appears twenty-five times in Scripture.  This would be a good craft for older teens and adults and requires some leather scraps, a pair of thongs (flip-flops), and some strong glue.

Matthew 3:11

I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Exodus 3:5

Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.

God loves us! No sew fleece pillow.

No-sew fleece pillow from Spoonful.com

These beautiful little pillows are surprisingly easy to make and can be adapted to a large number of Bible passages which talk of God’s love for us; God is love etc.

All you need is some blanket fleece, or even an old blanket will do!  And some foam or synthetic fibre fill.  If you don’t have any access to filling materials, adapt what is on hand.  eg: crumpled paper, dried corn husk or other organic material, foam packing beads etc

For children.

Some preparation may be needed.  When I do this craft with groups of kids, I usually cut the shape out and also cut the fringe ready for the children to tie.  For older kids, leave them to cut the fringing themselves.  It does take a little time to cut all the fringe.

For teens and adults

To make this more challenging for older teens and adults, they could do some embroidery or stitching on the front.  Perhaps a Bible verse or inspirational quote (‘God loves me’).  They could also sew small meaningful trinkets onto the front.  Lots of ways to adapt this craft.

Please note:  There are many relevant bible passages for this craft so I have categorised it into the most relevant Bible book categories.  I have confined it to the verses which speak of love as a noun, love as a verb, the love of Christ and the love of God.
