Black Bird Decorations
DIY Showoff has this great idea for a “Nevermore” tree with black birds for your tabletop.
This bird candelabra is a really clever upcycling project that you can use with your own items to customize it. Via The V Spot.
This first wreath by The 36th Avenue pairs a black bird with a colorful, fall palette.
The second wreath by Katydid and Kid uses some really beautiful black crepe paper to make a really sophisticated version of the raven wreath.
The third version is another great example of the classiness of black on black, via Boxwood Clippings.
You can paint them whatever color you like, but the plain look is actually great. It’s a mix of modern and creepy. Via Up to Date Interiors.
I can’t tell if this is fondant or clay, but the picture tutorial from Cake Central is cool and could probably be used for either.
This raven porch is simple but very affective and not too garish. Via Create. Craft. Love.
This bird mask via Martha Stewart can be made in any combination of colors and textures. A great creepy touch would be a black mask with bright red contacts!
And here are 2 great tutorials to make your own bird wings.
This tutorial from Llevo el invierno is in both English and Spanish.
This one from Paging Fun Mums has cute pinked edges.
