There is nothing more perfect for a spooky Halloween night than the combination of zombies and ravens. I may not have the full zombie, but I have some zombie bones and they glow in the dark for extra trick or treating fun! My Zombie Raven Wreath is pretty easy to make and is spooky enough for the adults, but not too over the top for the kids. Happy Halloween!
- grapevine wreath
- hand and bones from FloraCraft
- DecoArt paints
- foam brush
My new favorite technique is to put multiple paint colors on a tray, gently swirl them so the colors are still distinct, and paint the object in long strokes. This is the same way I painted my Rustic Glitter Woodland Pumpkins.
I painted the bones and the hand with my swirly concoction and then added some darker grey streaks for added depth.
When everything was dry, I painted Glow in the Dark paint on top.
To attach everything, I first glued the pieces where they would be touching the wreath or each other and then wrapped them with yarn to hold them in place until the glue dried.
The raven came with a wire loop between its claws, so I snipped the loop and simply stuck the ends through the foam hand to hold it in place.
This wreath is fairly easy to make–it mostly just needs drying time.
I love the combination of the raven and hand.
The raven watches the trick or treaters come to the door.
It’s so hard for me to take pictures of glow in the dark things, but hopefully you can tell!
My Zombie Raven Wreath is the perfect finishing touch to our Halloween decorations. It’s such a fun wreath to hang up! I’m considering adding a hidden spooky sound box to it for that extra spook. What do you think?
