Double-sided Halloween and Thanksgiving Hanging

Reversible Fall Hanging



This is a two-fer.

You know, two for the price of one, BOGO (that's Buy One, Get One for those of you who always wondered!). In other words, two great projects in one!

It all started with this little metal basket that I got from Pottery Barn (I think it was 75% off or something crazy like that) a couple years ago.

Like a lot of my great clearance finds, it sat around for awhile until I finally figured out what I would do with it!

I was torn between a Thanksgiving wall hanging or a Halloween one. So I decided to make both. I would make it reversible! I got brains and I'm not afraid to use 'em :)



For the Halloween side, I started with a base of coordinating papers in fall colors.


And then layered on a charming vintage postcard that I found and printed from the Graphics Fairy. A few stamps, some ribbons, a little tag and it was all done. Isn't it sweet??


The Give Thanks side started with a base coat of white crackle paint.


I love the rustic texture of it.


This side got stickers, flowers, ribbon and trim. I like using Fabri Tac adhesive for projects like this. It dries clear and unlike hot glue, doesn't dry in a big glob. It's also very tacky, so stuff sticks really quick.  It was helpful to use on this project with the rounded edges.

I love my little two-fer project :)

When Halloween is over, I'll just flip it over and enjoy it all during Thanksgiving.

Thanks for visiting today! Are you inspired to make something reversible?
