I think that this is the greatest 5 minute craft in the history of the world! I saw a plastic owl at the dollar and I KNEW it was really a mail owl. A quick coat of white paint, a print out Harry's Hogwarts letter and BAM! in 5 minutes you've got yourself a mail owl!



I know he's not EXACTLY like Hedwig, but I think for the $2 and 5 minutes this took he's a pretty close relative Smiley

Here's what he looked like before...

Very clever - and anyway in the film the owls who played Hedwig were all males so weren't exactly like either.  I think it is a spectacular mail owl.

Oh yes, a spectacular change from a dull owl to a white, Hedwig Mail owl!  Cheesy

I love it! (And your background with all those cool things you made!!)
