For years I’ve seen those cute penguins made out of black olives at parties and on-line, and felt it was finally time for me to try my hand at making an adorable olive animal. As I sat staring down into a can filled with California Ripe Olives, trying not to eat all of them before I made anything, it dawned on me that olives have a similar shape to owls and better yet many owls are covered in black feathers. I’m always happy when inspiration strikes without much effort.
I figured turning them into owls would be easy.
