Because, if you live in small places you won’t probably don’t have lots of storage, right? Then, what can be better than doing a DIY project that can serve you a double purpose!

Top 5 Halloween reversible DIY ideas!

With no further ado…

Here are the best reversible decorations that you can DIY for Halloween and use them all year round!!

Halloween Wreath idea

This are so easy to adapt for whatever you like! Try making a neutral wreath! That way you can achieve a classy look and still enjoy Halloween!

Take a look at the steps for achieving this beautiful reversible wreath.



Roll the mesh roll around the wood blend wreath, leaving space between the mesh and the wreath to add some volume.

Apply the lace bushes leaving space between them so you can add some chenille stems and the glittery halloween branches in black and orange.

Try to distribute them equally all around the wreath leaving some stems longer than others to give movement to the decor piece.

Finally add the spiders all around using a nylon thread, leave some hanging of the thread to look like they are crawling!

Since we used a neutral base for your wreath, all you have to do is take of the black and orange stems, as well as the spiders (since they are not glued there will be no problem!).

Add flowers with a color of your preference and voila! A new wreath that you can use whenever you want!!

Place some of the wire led lights at the bottom and leave the rest outside of the vase.

Mix the spiders and small pumpkins and start putting some of them inside the vase in layers with the led lights so that at the end you’ll have the lights and the Haloween decor all mixed.

Leave the lights off during the day and at night light them up!

Hide the foam with the decorative shred and place the coffins and skeletons inside the bucket in funny or scary poses, whatever you like most!

Intertwine the mesh rolls around the wire basket leaving it fluffy, don’t squish the mesh against the basket! Give it some movement.

Add the chenille stems around it with the skeletons doing haunting poses. When adding the skeletons use the Chenille stems to fix them so you don’t have to glue them.

With the black paper gift try to do a bottom for the basket, if you don’t the candy can go trough the wire holes!

Finally, add your favorite halloween candy and test the kids if they take the candy from the skeletons that are guarding it! Lots of fun for everybody!

How to reverse it

Since nothing is glued, just take off and store all the halloween props leaving you with a great storage place, the wire basket!

Using tiny decor objects to make for a bigger decoration piece makes it easier for you to store. Because you’ll just need to put away tiny objects, instead of bigger decor pieces.
