I just love this craft today. I've always loved crows for halloween, but these are an exception to this.
Who ever said that our little crows have to be spooky?
I'd much rather make some French Country Crows for this halloween.
Materials you'll need:
1. Black Crows
3. A needle and thread
4. Coffee Filters, crepe paper or other stiff medium to make your collars
How to make the ruffles...
Double Folded Ruffles
Crepe Paper Ruffles
Basic party crepe paper makes a fantastic ruffled collar and doubles as fringe for a witchy party hat. Book paper, pre folded into tight pleats and then sewed makes a double layer.
Take your crepe paper and wrap around the crows neck. Triple this amount and cut.
Making a double ruffle with a bit of glitter
Simply sew the two pieces of crepe paper (or coffee filter) together like we've done above.
When the collars are the right length and trimmed to fit, embellish them with rhinestones, sequins, or other Halloween tidbits. Glittering the collars is easiest with a two plate “dip” system. Spread some glitter on one plate and glue on another. Dip the edge of the collar into the glue and then into the glitter, tapping off the excess before moving to the next section.
The hats can be made by simply folding a small piece of paper into a cone, then gluing onto their heads.
Now go ahead and place your crows around your home, some on objects to give them height.
