Owl Invitations are a creative invitation design done by Martha Stewart herself. On her website, you can go under crafts and download a free Owl template onto your computer, fill in the colors on PhotoShop, and then print it out on a thick paper. After that, just cut it out, and put it together following her simple and easy instructions. Then the only thing you would have to buy would be small envelopes, unless you already have them. Orange envelopes would be the best. Here is the tempelate link if you want to do this idea. http://www.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/2016Q4/msl_1008_owl_invite.pdf
Creating your own may seem like a lot of work, but if you have all of the tools you need to do this, then its going to be no problem. One creative way, is to to get a Halloween magazine and make a small collage on a 4 X 8 peice of paper, and it can either be of words that you put together, or just a bunch of decorative pictures. If you didn’t feel like putting in the time for this, you could just get orange peices of paper, cut around it evenly with pink sheers, so it has a cool cut out design, and put either stickers, or if you have great handwriting, you could just make it out all by yourself. It may not be the most fanciest, but if its creative enough, they will get over the expense part and want to make their own next year.
