A new month means it’s time for a new theme for our Must Have Craft Tips & More series! If you’re new to our series, my friends Bev at Flamingo Toes, Kara at Mine for the Making, Allison at A Glimpse Inside, and myself (Michele at The Scrap Shoppe) take turns each Friday to pesent a brand new craft tip revolving around a new theme each month.
It’s September and we’re officially kicking off the holidays! We will be focusing on different holidays for the next 3 months and bring you tips to hopefully make them feel a little less daunting.
This month we’re focusing on Halloween and fall.
I am focusing specifically on reversible holiday decorations. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a ton of extra space to store holiday decorations. And I am a HUGE fan of decorating for ALL of the holidays. So multi-purpose decorations are always a big hit with me. This is super easy to do with fall and Halloween. Especially if you love pumpkins, like I do!
I have a large collection of pumpkins and jack-0-lanterns that I love to display together in October. This set up is from a couple of years ago so I’m pretty sure I have even more now. But after Halloween is over, I am able to simply turn most of the jack-o-lanterns around and pretend they are just pumpkins. Easy peasy!
I also made this reversible Halloween/fall garland years ago. I still love to use it!
I found these fun ideas that are also perfect multi-purpose crafts for Halloween and fall decor.

You can make an even bigger reversible stretch with these clever craft ideas! Transition from fall to winter. I particularly like the stacked pumpkins turned snowman. Who thinks of these things?? SO smart!

Awesome crafts and great ideas, especially since we have a limited amount of storage space in our home.
