Recycled Plastic Craft: Valentine Owl Wind Spinner

Got an old plastic folder lying around with a broken binder?  Don't toss it out! Turn it into a Valentine's Owl wind spinner!

I used three colored plastics:

1) red plastic folder (both sides)
2) white milk jug
3) black battery tray

Cut shapes from the pattern below.  Hot glue pieces in place, except wings.  Hole punch head for hanging, tail for spinner, and shoulders to attach wing pieces.  Hole punch spinner for hanging. Use brass brad to hold wings in place.  Decorate with 3D fabric paint (or nail polish).  Attach spinner to tail with colored string.  Attach string loop to owl's head.  Hang and enjoy!
