what you need:

size F and J hooks
worsted weight yarn in colors A, B, C, D, and E
black felt

how to do it:

This is worked with two strands of yarn at all times unless otherwise noted.  If you just use one your owl will be smaller and looser.  Also, do not ch at the beginning of rounds unless otherwise specified.
