Halloween decorating with crows.

I love crows and always enjoy using them to decorate for Halloween.  This year the Dollar Store had several different styles of crows and they were only a dollar apiece so I went a little crazy with them. Here are some ideas you might enjoy using to decorate your house this year.

1. Crows on the light fixture. For this one I just wrapped a berry garland around the top of the lights and then added a couple of crows.

2.   I snagged a bird nest for this one but if  you don’t have access to one you can use moss. I had a piece of driftwood that I stood on end and attached a bird to it with hot glue. Then I added a couple more . I stuck a couple of autumn leaves that I purchased at Hobby Lobby but you could use real leaves. I put some acorns in the nest and then added a couple of wooden pumpkins on either side.

3.  I made these boots last year using the same pattern as the faux snakeskin witch boots which are on the website under Halloween projects. Instead of the snakeskin fabric I used a canvas fabric and painted it black after I made them.

I just added some moss to the top of each boot and put acorns in “nests” and then  added a crow.

4.  I added a couple of crows to this wall hanging by attaching them to the iron scrolls with the wire that is connected to the feet.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
