Owls have been around for millions of years and have long been a part of human folklore and legend. They have been referenced to in culture countless times, depicted in cave paintings and in Egyptian hieroglyphics. They have been reproduced as objects of admiration, and have held many symbolic roles including wisdom and prosperity. Owls are a particular favourite with crafters around the world today.
Is it the big mesmerising front facing eyes that have captivated us for centuries? Owls carry wonderful mystery and have an alluring sense of danger about them. They approach in silence and most owls are dwellers of the night. Did you know? The female is often more brightly coloured then the male. Owls can turn head a very impressive 270 degrees. The ear tufts are for display only! They are not ears at all.
Chocovenyl owls are beautifully designed, whimsical and utterly adorable. The Owls Pair sticker set will have your heart all of a flutter.
The Height Chart will have your little ones reaching for the tree tops to be with their delightful friends (that toppling owl stack just makes me grin!)
One of the newest additions to our website is the fabulous Happy Owls mini set and my-oh-my are these some happy owls.
Any one of these lovely fabric wall sticker sets will bring beautiful colour and cheer to your kid’s spaces. They are sure to spark imagination and inspire a love of nature in your little ones.
