Preparing the Owl Eyes, to determine where to drill the holes, create a paper template of the owl eyes.
Trace the largest mason jar lid on to a piece of paper and cut out the circle.
Position the paper over the cheese grater towards the top aligning the holes from the grater with the location of the drilled holes.
Mark the position with a marker and transfer the markings on to the lids.
Repeat with the smaller bottle caps.
Next, carefully drill holes through the marked positions using a drill press.
Assembling the Owl by working one owl eye at a time, stack the lids from largest on the bottom to smallest on the top aligning the drilled holes.
Push the screw through the holes and then align the screw with the designated cheese grater hole.
Place the washer and bolt on the other end of the screw (on the inside of the cheese grater) to secure the lids in place.
Repeat with the other owl eye.
Heat up a hot glue gun and apply the wood nose piece to the cheese grater in the center just under the eyes.
Lastly, thread the wire through the two of the bottom holes of the cheese grater from inside out.
Wrap the wire around a piece of tree branch to secure in place. The wire needs to wrap 3 times to resemble an owl’s claws.
Position the owl outdoors in the garden.
