Paper_Crow_Chandelier_DIYNow that my front porch is ready for Halloween, I started in on decorating my house with DIY Halloween decorations. I wanted to set up an inviting entry with treats for my guests and the focal point being a flying crow chandelier. We began this project by cutting out paper crows from a black metallic paper. Of course you can use any black paper for this project and you can download the crow template below. We then used a manzanita branch painted orange for the base of this piece and hung it from my ceiling. The crows were tied onto the branches with black string and mixing in a few black paper feathers. Easy and eye catching. It looks like the crows are hovering over the treat bowls hoping to grab a piece. The entryway desk was set with items from my stash, including the leftover mannequin hands I have kept around for years. After a little coaxing I was able to get my cat, Cleo to model for this shot. I can’t have a black cat and not take full advantage of her adorableness during this time of year, right? So what are your DIY Halloween decor plans for the season? Share with us on Facebook! ~ Lia
