Day #3: Dollar Store Black Crows

 It’s day #3 in the 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor series.

I almost didn’t get to posting today….we had two house showings this week, which is awesome, but….when there are 5 kids in your family, two of which are really little, and your husband and you both basically work from home, deep cleaning a 3,200 sq ft house twice in one week is CRAZY!!!


I made it.

So here’s today’s topic:

Dollar Store Black Crows!

These crows are awesome! I was so glad the Dollar Store had them this year! They have little wires coming out of their feet, so they’re easy to stick about anywhere.

Seriously, these are one of my favorite things at the Dollar Store this fall.

The only problem is…they are only a dollar, so I keep wanting to buy more.

I put them on my curly willow branches in my Living Room. 

…and I used them on my Halloween Mantle.

My friend Linda used them on her  tablescape.

They could even be used on a treat. (they even make the treat look sinister).

 I’m totally in love with this Halloween wreath on Etsy.

….even PotteryBarn is using them,

but if you choose to buy them from PB, they cost $12-$28.


…and why pay that, when their at the Dollar Store for a dollar?

And that wraps up day #3 in the 31 Days of Thrifty Fall Decor series.

    • Thanks Tami.
      You should send out a local FB message and see if anyone has a tree that they need trimmed. Some people get them from a local park here, and I have a neighbor who landscapes, so he brought them home….I was lucky 🙂

  7. I’ve been wondering where everyone was finding those black crows! thanks for sharing. I love what you’ve done with them!

  8. Oh I love those dollar store black crows, I’ve had mine for a couple of years now and they’ve held up nicely. I’ve even used them outside on branches. Your decor looks lovely! Thanks for sharing.
