. . . Dollar Store Owls . . .

Recently I was in the Dollar Store and I saw these adorable ugly little owl figures.  I walked away thinking "Who would buy those?" then turned right back around and snatched up several of them because of course a little spray paint will make them adorable!  

Funny, when my son saw them before I painted them he was over the moon with how cute he thought they were...WHAT?  He surely has better taste than that but maybe not.  He likes them now but keeps telling me how much better they looked before I painted them...I don't know, what do you think?  

 You will need spray paint and these little owls from the Dollar Store.  I was just there again over the weekend and our store still had them so hopefully you can get them before they are gone.

 I painted one set all white and then the other set I painted a pale sage green.  I just love how they turned out.  So cute!

so cute!



Before and after

Much better with a little bit of spray paint!  I love the white ones but also love the set with a little color on them.


  1. Too cute! I spray painted some consignment store owls but I didn't see any at the Dollar store.

  2. They are precious!!! I found one at a Thrift Store and painted it with craft paint this weekend! Amazing what a little paint can do! :)

  3. Awesome!! They looks very cute! Now I know how mine will look when they are spray painted. I bought some early in Sept. and the hubby has been bugging me to get them out of his domain (garage).

  4. they look so much better! classy :)

  5. Oh my gosh I love that blue color you chose! Makes me think about repainting mine all over again. I got such a laugh out of your son thinking they were cute!!

  6. OMG, the originals kinda made me laugh and the word 'scary' came to mind all at once! Yours are very cute:@)

  7. Definitely am liking the after of these! Very pretty idea.

  8. What a fantastic idea!! Boy you can really make some treasures out of dollar store stuff, huh? Great job : )

  9. I love this idea. I just bought a couple of them this week - how funny. I will have to do this. Rhonda

  11. Bleh... they really were ugly. Even I would have passed them up!
    I love posts where little effort creates huge impact- especially on stuff I would have never considered myself.

  12. I just bought these owls for a baby shower and so glad I got to see how they turned out spray painted! thanks!!!

  14. I bought 2 of the skinny owls last night. I thought they were ugly and almost left them behind. I now have an idea. Spray Paint. Thanks!!


    1. Thanks Carla! I know they aren't very cute as they are in the store but spray paint really makes a difference. I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. They are so cute now.
