- 3. Cut stems from daisies. Adhere daisies onto front of wreath as shown. Carefully remove legs from raven. Adhere raven onto top of wreath.
- 4. Adhere two 1” wiggle eyes onto front of wreath. Adhere 1” wiggle eyes onto center of black daisies and two 1/2” wiggle eyes onto center of orange/yellow daisy.

- 6. Tie another strip of bandana through top of wreath for hanger.
- 1. When visiting your local dollar store, look for discount Halloween decorations similar to the raven used in this project. Tailor your wreath design around the items you find, like giant spiders or life-like hanging bats.
