How To Make a Kid-Friendly Fall Owl Centerpiece

I found this cute owl craft in October's issue of Disney's Family Fun magazine and thought I'd share how our version of it turned out.

I can't find a link to the craft so I've listed all the instructions per the magazine.
To assemble one owl, trim an inch from one end of a bathroom tissue tube, fold in the top, and secure it with tape.

Cut a cupcake liner into quarters, then trim away the flat sections, leaving just the ruffles.

Use tacky glue to secure overlapping ruffled pieces to the tube.
Cut eyes and a beak from card stock.

Add pupils and dots with marker.

Glue the eyes and beak to the tube. For ruffled wings, cut sections from a liner and glue them to the back of the tube.  For smooth wings, attach a curved half-circle of card stock instead. 

Perch on "tree limbs" (branch) in a jar to use as a centerpiece.
