Free Printable Fall Banner – Owls and Fall

Sharing is caring!

Owls and Pumpkin Fall Banner

My two granddaughters are coming for another sleepover making it the perfect time to create another seasonal banner.   This free printable banner of little owls is easy enough for children to make and the template is included.    Little ones will need supervision using their safety scissors but no particular skills are required to create this cute owl banner.

Fall patterns in teals with little acorns, plaids, and leaves are just that little bit different from the typical fall colour.  Teal is a surprisingly pretty colour to place in your fall decor and if your planning on decorating with traditional fall colours, I recommend trying a couple of accent pieces in teal.  If you let me know how you like it.

Here is my fall tour featuring  teal and traditional colours, it should give you an idea of how it would look in your home.

My eldest son’s yard is spectacular with huge trees of all kinds.  When I go to visit I inevitably hear an owl hooting nearby.  The owl sounds truly beautiful but I have never been able to get a glimpse of the owl, none the less that owl is my inspiration for this post.

Hopefully, I get the chance to see him in the fall when the foliage is thinner and he or she is less camouflaged.

Printable Owl Banner Tutorial




3 sheets of plain card stock paper

Colour printer

Small safety pins (optional)



Hole punch

String for hanging

Poster putty (optional)

First, you will need the templates for the owls and the pumpkins.   Each template prints out on letter size card stock and there are two printables on each page.

The banner is in various fall colours, teal, oranges, browns, rusts, reds, and golden yellows.  The patterns on the owls are part of the printable template.



Start by printing out all three printable fall banner templates.

Carefully cut them out.

Using a hole punch make a small hole in the top middle of each printable.

You can either thread the owls right on to the string or first place a small safety pin through the hole on the printable.

Lace the thread through the small holes at the end of a safety pin, this will allow your printables to hang flat.

If you have issues with the printables sliding as you hang them, use little bits of poster putty on the string near the safety pan.  This makes a small easy to remove barrier that prevents the safety pin from moving.

You can either tie the ends of the banner is an adjustable noose knot, or in a simple little bow.

I know this post is early and were all stilling hanging on to summer.    I need to start fall decor early so that my readers have time to make the crafts once they find my posts.  If you do come across this post early please just pin it for fall inspiration.

It’s a bit out of season but if you like this simple free printable banner I have a super cute bunny banner for Spring as well.

Almost time to start eating all things pumpkin.

  1. Aw, cute! My son loves owls. When we went over to England in 2005, we actually got to pet a barn owl at Hamerton Zoo in Sawtry where my brother and his family lived.

    Happily pinned to my Crafts to Make board,
    Barb 🙂

  2. What a fun project to make with your Grandaughters!! They must LOVE coming to stay with you and have such a creative Grandma! Enjoy!!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Sam. Doing a craft with them is a tradition. They always enjoy making something and it gives them something to take home besides. This time it was an all girls overnight sleepover so we really had fun. As always they melt me lol. Thank you for commenting. Leanna

      Hi Florence. Thank you very much for the pin. These are super simple to make and pretty handy to have on hand if little ones come and need a quick activity.

      Thank you for commenting. Enjoy your week.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Glad you like them. My grand daughters were able to cut them out on their own. They had a great time doing it.

  3. Super cute and fun! I love anything owl! What a fun printable!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Carolann, banners are so versatile when doing decor. I love owls as well.

  4. I adore owls, I have many in my backyard and they are so beautiful. This would be great for my mantle.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Maria. I created this for children, but may add it to a burlap banner backdrop or a piece of simple artwork to make it more adult looking. I love owls and am a bit jealous about having them so nearby. I would love to see them.

      Thanks for commenting.

  5. Leanna, this really is one of the cutest fall crafts that I have seen. This is one of those projects that I wish I had thought of 🙂 !

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you very very much. I may update it by adding it to burlap later on in the fall, for now I am just starting to complete some projects to set out in a few weeks. I appreciate your compliment very much. Enjoy your week Sherry.

  6. So according to my 8 year old sister, “owls are like so cool right now”! So she will love this. Your right on trend in the 8year old world!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      That’s the best review I could receive. Thank you so much for telling me. Made my day.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you, the goal was to make something that children could do, or adults could add to their banners etc.

  7. The fall is coming! These are super cute! I’m sure your grand daughters will love to make these with you. Thanks for sharing at over the moon!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I am hoping I can create one as an applique on a tea towel or something as well. I would love to see a live owl, they are so beautiful.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Right on Milena. I look forward to hearing from you. Now you piqued my interest.

  8. Not quite ready to embrace Fall but your printables are ADORABLE and so beautifully done! Pinned to my Fall Board to share and remind myself to come back in September to print them out.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Marie. I am prepping for fall making decor etc. I am holding my breath waiting on getting the countertops installed before I put any decor up. Glad that you liked them.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Banners are so easy to add a little bit of whimsy or colour to your decor. These ones are perfect as they are for children, or I may update them onto some burlap or material for a more adult look. Thank you for commenting Debra. Enjoy your week.
