There has been a stack of canvases in my craft area just waiting for me to do something with them. I walk by them every single day and think “I need to do something with these”. But what? Then it hit me! I could put two together and make a double-sided canvas and use it for two holidays!
I love double-sided or reversible decor pieces. Like this dual holiday pillow and this framed farmhouse style sign. Not only are they pretty AND functional; they take up less storage room when not in use and that is huge if you’re downsizing or dialing back on “all the stuff” like me.
How to Make a Doubled-Sided Canvas
I started out by Chalking a Fall design on one of the canvases. I’ve used the Fresh Pumpkins transfer before on a white background and loved how it turned out. But this time I wanted a black background. I am thrilled with how it looks.
The design details on this transfer are unbelievable.
You could never get this kind of detail with a regular stencil. I used three colors on these pumpkins: Bumble Bee, Orange Peel, and Fawn.
I chose to use the “A Child is Born” transfer for the Christmas side of the canvas. I used a white canvas for this side and only one Chalk Paste Color: Black. The color “Storm” Chalk Paste would also look very pretty against the white background.
This is a much simpler design but also very beautiful.
Once the designs were finished and dried, I hot glued the canvases together, back to back and then added a coordinating ribbon around the edge and secured it with more hot glue.

Love this DIY project! This is will definitely help me lessen the ‘stuff’ I have, too! 😉
Thanks for sharing!
