What could be more hip that embroidering a cross stitch owl on burlap with neon thread? Not much that I can think of. Check out the tutorial!

Owls are huge right now. I can’t say that I get it, because I don’t. But my Momma is totally into them along with everybody else. To the point that my dad jokingly says there are owls everywhere. But then again, maybe he isn’t  I haven’t been down since they come up so much in probably 2 years. It could be owl central up in their house.

But since I haven’t visually verified these “owl crazy” claims I decided to knock out some fab and very popular owl art, but with my own twist. I cross-stitched it. And to make it some crazy popular trifecta, I also used neon colors and stitched it on burlap. Can you handle that kind of a triple whammy?!!

If so, head on over to Mom Spark to get the freebie pattern and knock out some of your own completely, perhaps even ridiculously popular wall art :)

    Trying to do a project with 140 kids. Cross stitch on burlap. Saw your owl and was wonder what type of paper you used. Need a snow flake. Is it a special paper? How do you get it off.
    Thanks so much

      Hi, Maria. I used printer paper. If the x shapes are large enough it is fairly easy to pick the paper out or the thinner the paper, the easier it will be to remove in the end. I used “high quality” printer paper (read thicker than normal) and it took some time to remove it all.

      I’m not sure of the color names but they are yarn that I got at Hobby Lobby. I’m sure there will be similar colors available!
