  1. Hot glue two large pom-poms together. One will be a bit larger (for the body) than the head.
  2. Cut a strip of solid colored paper (to match the pom-poms)
  3. 1 inch wide.
  4. Place that strip on the scoring board, and score at inch intervals for the length of the paper. Cut two small sections to create wings (10-12 folds long).
  5. Hot glue those wings into the sides of the pom-pom that is the body.
  6. Hot glue a feather tail to the back of the bottom pom-pom.
  7. Hot Glue a neck bow to the front neck of the crow.
  8. To make the hat, cut a 4 inch circle from decorative paper.
  9. Cut that circle into 4 sections. Roll one of the 4 sections to create a curved hat. Secure with hot glue on the seam.
  10. Using hot glue, secure a brim around the bottom of the party hat with a large chenille stem. Hot glue in place on the top of the crows head. Add a small pom-pom to the top.
  11. Hot glue two pearl rhinestones to the face for eyes. Dot with the paint pen to create eyes for the crow.
  12. Cut a diamond shape from a solid orange cardstock. Fold in half and hot glue centered under the eyes to create a beak.
  13. Fold the end of a chenille stem in 1inch. Now, fold it back on itself 1 inch, then back again and continue to create 3 toes on the bottom of the leg. Twist the remainder of the stem doubled on itself to create a solid leg. Insert the end of the leg into the body of the pom-pom and hot glue in place. Repeat on the other leg.
  14. Cover the top of a 2 inch canvas with decorative paper. Wrap the edge of the canvas with washi tape and fold to secure the top paper.
  15. Hot glue a sign on the wing of the crow.
  16. Bend the knees of the crow to balance itself and hot glue the feet to the top of the decorated canvas.
