Ombre Owl Napkin Holder with @decoart_inc

I really love the ombre trend.  I decided to give it a try on a little owl napkin holder I found at the thrift store. I love this thrift store transformation and I hope y’all will too.

I found this little guy at a local thrift store for $1.  He is so retro that he is back in style.  It really was love at first sight.

I started with coats of white until he was completely covered.  My son actually said at this point “is white your favorite color?”  I asked him why he would say that and he said that is all I ever use.  Well I have bigger and better plans for this owl.

I picked a few starter colors then put it up for a vote on my facebook page.  That is right I let my audience decide my starting color.  The majority picked very berry in the center so I went with it.  

That first row of feathers is in very berry.  I then started mixing in white all the way until a very, very light pink on the owl’s head.  This was sort of like painting by number in a way.  Just filling in spaces.

I used gray for the feet and eyes.  The eyes are a bit ombre also.  I love my new napkin holder!  I am thinking of adding more of this color to my kitchen so y’all stay tuned!

    Love this! I just recently started selling Origami Owl and I am always on the hunt for cute owl decor. I definitely need to be on the look out for something like this to add to my display.
    Thanks for the tips!
