Halloween Crow Altered Laughing Cow Cheese Box/Candle Holder

Hello lovely crafters.  Here is a project (as promised) that Nancy and I did at the CKC in Jacksonville last month.  Isn't this cool.  I took inspiration from many of the decorated crows I have seen on Pinterest and took it up several notches.  I am into these crows this year.  There are 100's of them at the Dollar Store and I want every one of them....lol
What the decorations are sitting on is an alter Laughing Cow cheese box....yeah I know I have a lot of them don't I.  But hey this is not just any Laughing Cow cheesebox-this is the DOUBLE ONE!!!  lol  Yes this will open if you want to put something  like "candy" in it.  Or better yet, a healthy thing to do would make a little mini to fit inside!
These beautiful roses were created with a Marvey Punch, painted with glue and glittered with "Paprika" colored glitter.  Aren't they vivid.  I place some purple shiny balls in-between the flower and some green glitter leaves in my floral arrangement.  I used cheesecloth around the decorations for a spooky-eerie effect!
Here is a close up of the crows necklace and hat.
Here's how the back side looks.
This skeleton is so cool with the spider on top of his head.  Yeah, I am liking skeletons this year too.  I don't even watch any scary movies or shows but they appeal to me this year....lol  I just think they are fun.  Thanks for stopping by.  Below is a video of my project and a little peep at the inside of my home with all my Halloween decorations.   On weekends I have them lit for most of the day.  It's so pretty.  Happy Crafting.  See you soon!

I still love this! I used it in a Darker Side of Wonka table this week - used donuts with vampire teeth in them, powdered sugar donuts that looked like eyeballs, and apple fritter "brains" - it was so fun and it won first place in our decorating contest! The Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory tables were awesome - wish you had been there. I will try and get some pictures. You have taught me so much! Hugz!!!!
