Reversible Burlap Thanksgiving Ornaments



Burlap offers the perfect warmth and texture for Fall decor. These handsome Thanksgiving ornaments can be used in wreaths, on garlands, swags, and trees. 

And here's a bit of ingenuity:



You can make them as reversible ornaments to span two seasons: Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Let's see how:




Starting with a Thanksgiving-printed fabric, cut out the images and pin it to a bit of burlap. Take care to pin the Halloween print to the other side as well.



Stitch your fabric patches to the burlap, stuffing it just a little bit to give dimension. If you don't sew, use fusible webbing and iron the fabrics together.




Choose buttons, silk flowers, raffia, and ribbon to embellish the ornaments. This gives more interest and dimension.



Attach ribbon to the top for hanging the ornament on wreaths, swags, doorknobs, gift tags, and more.


While your at it, grab some 
bling for your blog, to give 
it seasonal personality just like...


Each of these ornaments has its own personality. I made 5 ornaments, which gives 10 different images when you use both sides. For a more in-depth tutorial on these ornaments, *click here.*



They will take you from Fall into the Holidays...



I love projects that 
simplify keeping up with the holidays. 
What tricks do you use to make decorating easier?

I think these are adorable, and I especially like that they're reversible. Makes redecorating for the next holiday so easy.

I may make some of these for Christmas.

Thanks for the inspiration and for linking up to the Better Late Than Never Thanksgiving Inspirations party.
