Halloween Crow- Nevermore

I love crows for decorating this time of year.  And they are everywhere!  This is a $1 Store project featuring my crow and a Christmas Box.  I picked up the crow for $2 and the box was $1.25 and I grabbed the wee witches hat at Michaels with my 50% coupon bring it to about $1.50.  This whole project ended up costing about $5!  Not to bad.

I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper.  Then I glued it back into place. 
 
 
The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die.  I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel.
 
I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet.  TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim. 
 
Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top.
 
I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped.  I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges.  The attach with hot glue.  A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy scene.
The Iron Fence boarder die is wonderfully gothic.  The I attached the Word Band.  A little more tinsel adds some bling.
 

I love the Apothecary Skull!  He's so creepy.  Then I used the eye ball from the Remnant Rubs- Elements. 
 
Another great addition to my Halloween Collection!
