Step 1: The Stuff You Will Need
What you will need to get this party started:
(1) old radio
(1) black crow
(1) crow perch
(1) hot glue gun with glue
(1) can of cooper or brass colored spray paint
(1) pair of plyers
(1) pair of wire cutters
(1) old key
(1) small magnifying glass (optional)
(1) black and white photo of your mum (optional)
Step 2: Spray Paint the Perch
Step 3: Decide How You Want Your Crow to Look
I bought a foam crow from the $ store. The great advantage to this was some of the gears are heavy and I was able to punch into the foam and secure.
Step 4: Time to Glue!
Now that you have the general config firm it up with glue, I suggest to use a hot glue gun. Hot glue is great because if you don't like how something looks or it is top heavy (in my case) you can ball up the glue (wait till it cools) and remove it to start over.
Step 5: Optional
I found and old pic of my mum and a magnifying glass I bought at Harbor Freight. This made the crow more sentimental for me and brought an old picture back to life
