Halloween Crow Wreath

Hello and happy day to you my friends!

So by now, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have a love affair with wreaths.  I love them.  I love to make them.  I just think they’re a great way to welcome guests, and the changing seasons & holidays!

I haven’t made one in a while, but an idea came to me for a Halloween wreath, so I decided to try it out.  I have had this wreath base wrapped in red yarn for months now and I was never sure what to do with it…then I thought how great it would look wrapped in black lace.  (I have no idea why my brain works the way it does, hahaha).  And as luck would have it I had all the supplies on hand!  The lace was from this project, and the crows were from last years Halloween mantel and tablescape.  So I spent nothing.  Cha-ching!

So here it is…my

I think the black lace over the red has a spooky bloody effect perfect for Halloween!  And the crows…don’t even get me started.  I love crows.  Weird, I know.

Caw! Caw!  Can’t wait to hang this on my Halloween porch in a few weeks.  I like to wait until after Canadian Thanksgiving before I decorate for the spooky season!

Here’s a quick how to:

  • Wrap a wreath base in red material:  you can use yarn or fabric.
  • Then wrap the red base with some black lace.  I just used a glue gun to keep it all together.
  • Glue on a couple crows (I found these at Walmart).
  • Use some extra lace as the wreath hanger.
  • And done.  Spookalicious!

So there we go.  I made a craft (which I haven’t done in long time) and it felt good!

Have a spooky day!  I know I will…I’m getting ready for my 20 year high school reunion today…now that’s spooky.Signature

  • Reply nicolette @ momnivore's dilemma September 28, 2013 at 6:40 PM I agree about crows. Love them. It was that Brandon Lee film back in the 90s. If you haven't seen it, do rent it. A spooky love story at its best. 20 year high school reunion? That is spooky. Hope you had fun, Jo. We should do our Halloween linky again! <3 Nic
