Halloween wreath made with moss and crows

crow wreathThis Halloween wreath is so easy to make and looks great hung on your front door or entryway. I used a grapevine wreath, some crows, and moss and completed it in about an hour. I used some wooden candy corn to add some color but you can use your imagination and use whatever you want.

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.
