I have had a hard time deciding my fall decor this year. I’ve been fighting between fall and Halloween decor and couldn’t decide what to do.
So I did both.
I’d like to introduce you to my REVERSIBLE Fall and Halloween Wreath. I decided to kill two birds with one stone.
I grabbed on old grapevine wreath that had seen better days, and tackled it with some paper crafting. First thing to do was create a design that would work dual sided. My idea started with the idea of a “poisoned apple”. I figured apples are a good fall staple, what with apple picking and apple orchards.
With a little help from my Silhouette, I created a dual wreath. One side for fall, one for Halloween. I found these wonderful graphics in the Silhouette shop for $0.99 a piece and downloaded them for my project.
These were all super cute! If I’d had more time, I probably would have played around with welding the letters together of each design, since individually cutting them and adhering them to my paper apples was a bit obnoxious. I ran the small pieces through my Xyron sticker maker. I used my Skor tape to adhere the bigger paper cuts to each other. For my apples, I cut six; three apples mirrored to be glued back to back. I used some short wooden skewers in between the mirrored images and used those to stick them into my wreath.
I used ribbon to attach my two main apples, putting the words for each theme on the back of the other apple. I wrapped my wreath in a neutral green sparkly ribbon, one that would match both themes. Then, on either side, I used my Skor tape to stick a themed ribbon around the wreath, showing only on the appropriate side. So how do you think it turned out?
Not too shabby for an old wreath and a bit of paper!
Do you like putting out a wreath for each season?
