Using the same cutter or glass, cut a small portion from the top of the circle.
Use the cutter or glass and press down on each side of the owl but not all the way through. The indent created forms the wings.

Using a skewer or the point of a pencil you can add some more detail. Prickle the body and poke a couple of holes for the eyes and beak but don't go all the way through the dough.
If you want to hang your salt dough owl you can punch a hole all the way through at the top using a skewer.

Place on baking paper in a low oven and leave to full dry out. Depending on how thick your owl is, this could take an hour or more. Alternatively you could leave in a warm place overnight.
Once fully dry and cool, you can decorate.
