Crow Magnet Or Pin


It’s fall, and that means pumpkin patches, corn mazes, harvest festivals and of course, scarecrows. But scarecrows wouldn’t have a job if it weren’t for the crows! This cute little guy makes a great magnet for your fridge, or is a fun pin your child can wear to that fall party they were invited to.





I used some wood pieces that came in a variety pack kind of like this one. I used the tear drop shapes - one larger one and two medium pieces. The hat is a doll miniature measuring approximately 2-inches in diameter.


You will need:

1 large teardrop wood piece
2 medium teardrop wood pieces
1 miniature 2” straw doll hat
Magenta felt
Miniature green pom-pom
Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Paint: black, white, dark yellow
Round magnet
Tools: scissors, paintbrush, toothpick
Crow pattern


Paint the two smaller teardrop wood pieces black. Using the pattern as a guide, paint the larger one black at the rounded end and down to the beak. Paint the pointed end dark yellow.


Just so you can visualize where the wings should go, place them on top of the pattern.


Lift the larger teardrop off and add glue to the round end of the wings.


Place the head back on top of the wings. Cut the hat in half and add glue to the rim ends.


Let the glue sit for about twenty minutes.


Dip the handle end of your paintbrush into the white paint and use it to “draw” two ovals onto the face for the eyes.


Use a toothpick dipped in black paint to add the nostrils in the beak.


When the white paint has dried, cut the pointy tip off of a toothpick and dip it into black paint. Add the pupils to the whites of the eyes.


Once the eyes have dried completely, add some glue to the back and attach the magnet.

Hope you enjoyed this project, have fun!

That would be cute with the googly eyes too. I'm not much good at painting, but I probably could do this.

After being in relationship with George for five years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called DR Mako and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 6pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: Makospelltemple@yahoo.com or call him :+2347054263874.
