I've been on the lookout for owl crafts ever since my daughter started going to the Temple University of Pharmacy -- their mascot is an owl. Here's one from Purple Paisley Pinwheels.
Pretty easy, and very cute (I can also use all the yarn scraps from the pom pom pumpkin to stuff them). They can also be stuffed with lavender or other herbs for sachets, or beans for a paperweight. They can be made from Chrstmas prints, Halloween prints -- no limits here.
