Simple Fall accent

Remember that bag of flat tennis balls in my closet? Yep, these came from that very same bag. They just got a little facelift with some twine. And I think they are very “fall-ish” paired with that plate.
The twine adds a fun texture to my front room.
Here’s the Before pic.
Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been rather busy preparing for Super Saturday (craft day at my church), hubby gone on rotation, work, and training for a half marathon. Things should be slowing down a bit; the hubs is home now and today was Super Saturday {YAY!!}. So I should be able to finish some of my ‘started-not-completed’ projects. First up is my Staircase. Can’t wait to get this project rockin!!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
