DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween Crow Wreath

I love me some Pottery Barn. I've been on a real Pottery Barn kick recently, I think because I registered there for my wedding I got in the mood for their aesthetic recently. I've always coveted their Halloween items too, and I usually splurge on one or two each season!

This year they are selling this georgeous, rustic, simple bat wreath. I loved it the moment I saw it, but I also said to myself, I could make something even better. I love the look of the black bats arranged simply around a grapevine wreath, but in person I think the wreath lacks a bit of dimension; the bats sit very flat on the face of the wreath.

My version involves arranging feathered crows around the wreath. I love my version even more than Pottery Barn's because of the dimension the crows give to the wreath. Plus, it's a bit more realistic of a scene! You could definitely find crows perching on a bramble of branches on Halloween night!

I've made a few DIY wreaths in my day, and I have to say this is the easiest of all time! All it involves is purchasing your materials (very easy, I found them all at Michaels and they have these crows every year), and arranging your crows around the wreath. I used hot glue to permanently attach the crows in place, but if you prefer to have the option of removing the crows later, twist ties would work just as well.


- 3 to 4 feathered crows. I found mine at Michaels for $6 on sale.
- 1 grapevine wreath. Mine is 18 inches. I got this for $2.50 at Michaels with a coupon.
- Hot glue or twist ties to secure crows to wreath.
- Pliers (optional)


- Arrange crows on wreath to your satisfaction. To make the crows each look a bit different, I recommend varying their posture, with some bending over, and some standing up tall.
- If your crows legs are wire, like mine were, using pliers to manipulate the wire to attach properly to the wreath can be helpful.
- Secure crows using either twisty ties or hot glue. Allow to dry.
- Display your gorgeous, spooky Halloween wreath! It's as easy as that!

The overall cost of my wreath was $20 for three crows and the grapevine wreath form. Not bad when you compare it to $60 full price for Pottery Barn's bat version! This is my type of DIY, super easy, which means super fun, and absolutely impossible to screw up while looking completely classy. It even beats the original in my book!

I hope you enjoyed this Halloween crow wreath tutorial! If you make this, it would totally make my year to see your version! Don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter and follow me on Bloglovin so you never miss an update!
