Attach Wing Nut and Bolt
Using 1/8" drill bit, add two holes to the back of the PVC straps to properly fit wing nuts (Image 1). Thread wing nut and bolt through the hole created with drill bit (Image 2).
Coat each owl, front and back, with black spray paint. To ensure a smooth finish, hold can 6 to 8 inches from the surface of the owl and move the can back and forth in slow arcs as you spray.
Attach Feathers and Add Tack Detail
Once paint has fully dried, use scissors to cut approximately 25 leaf-shaped feathers for each owl from black vinyl. Attach them in layers, starting at the bottom, using a staple gun (Image 1). As a decorative detail, add a row of stainless steel tacks (rather than staples) along the top row of feathers (Image 2).
