31 Days of Halloween - Spooky Crow Wreath Halloween Decor

 

'I finally got my hands on the wreath I was looking for, and had a spooky good time using all my Dollar Tree Halloween leftovers to create another project. I don't understand it; I keep pulling materials out of my stash bin, but I don't seem to be making much headway. Luckily, I have a few week's worth of projects to create...

This one started with the straw stuff people use when making flowers arrangements. I used Mod Podge to keep a handful of it together to look like a next. I thought that would be less dangerous than using my glue gun, but it took forever for it to dry. But dry it did, and after wrapping my wreath with wired ribbon and black netting, I did use my glue gun to keep the nest from going anywhere.

Once I placed my crow in the nest, inspiration kept me busy, adding the skull and glittery orange buttons in the nest, adding greenery and a bit of floral stuff (looks like colored, dried spaghetti noodles to me). The spider was added for balance, and then I found a mini Halloween dream catcher I added at the last minute. I pulled a tiny black spider out of the webbing material and my wreath was complete, except for the ribbon with which to hang it.
