Equipment

  • Small wire cutter

Ingredients

From the Dollar Store

  • 1 Floral Ring
  • 2 Rolls of Black Ribbon 1 to wrap it with1 for bow at bottom
  • 7 Crows, Ravens, or Blackbirds Look for ones with wires under the feet. (I picked a couple different varieties)
  • 2 Black Flower Bunches The flowers I picked had spiders
  • 1 Purple or Orange Floral Accent

Other Household Items

  • Black Electrical Tape
  • Sewing Pins

Instructions

  • Wrap the ring with black tape to cover the color of the ring, then wrap some wide ribbon and pin it in place with sewing pins.
  • Press the feet all the way into the birds so the wire is not showing between the bird and the feet, but still sticks out the bottom of the feet.
  • Use the wire that is on the bottom of the birds’ feet and press them into the ring somewhat evenly spaced. If the crow did not have wires in the feet, use the pipe cleaners.
  • Arrange a bow with the remaining ribbon and pin it to what will be the bottom of the wreath.
  • Wrap a pipe cleaner as a hanger on what will be the top of the wreath.
  • Clip and trim the flowers from the bunch leaving enough stem to press
    into the rings without poking out the other side. Fill in spaces with the flowers.
  • Clip apart the floral accent and poke the ends around the outside of the wreath for accent.

Please return and reply with a note about your wreath and any variations you did.
