To make their perches, you need only a few bare branches from a crafts store or your own yard. Paint the branches black and wedge them into place.
Use a photocopier to enlarge the owl template to desired size. Cut out and trace onto black card stock or poster board (flip template for second owl to make a symmetrical pair).
Cut out owl shapes, including eyes.
Tape a paint stirrer to the back of each owl; tape owls to windows on either side of door.
