Unwelcome guests might think twice about rapping at your door with this raven keeping watch. To make this spike-encircled wreath, cover a craft-store styrofoam ring with black spray paint, then add inexpensive black-plastic cable ties (about $6 for a pack of 100 at home centers). Arrange the ties so that some point in and some point out. Attach a bow and add a stuffed raven for the final, eerie touch.
