I think this just might be the greatest 5 minute craft in the history of the world.
I saw this plastic owl at the $store today and immediately knew what to do.
A very quick coat of white paint (and some brown for the base), a printout of the iconic Harry Potter letter and voila! My very own mail owl in about 5 minutes. I know he's not EXACTLY like Hedwig but for $2 and 5 minutes I think he's practically perfect.
