Arrangment Re-Do

Do you remember this arrangement? I was so pleased with it and unfortunately it was only pretty for a day or two. The wind kept blowing the arrangement out of the basket and everytime I put it back in, it looked a little worse. I finally took it down and have had a naked front door for a couple of weeks now.

I really liked the materials that I’d used to make the arrangement and wanted to somehow reuse them. I had an inspiration and came up with this.

Can you guess to what the arrangement is attached???

Look at the back of the arrangement!

Can you believe that this actually worked?? We keep our front door shut, so I don’t have to worry about looking at the back of the racket. I used an LCheapo racket from Walmart that we had stuffed in a closet from a long time ago. I spray painted one side of it with white paint. The next time Mr. SP breaks a racket, I’ll have to save it instead of throwing it away!

All ready to hang!!

    What a brilliant idea! Great use for all those old tennis rackets, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Your arrangement looks beautiful…love the bow at the bottom! Susan

  3. Genius!

    I would never have thought of that in a million years. I’ll keep my eye out at garage sales now.

    Thanks for a great idea.

    Thanks for checking out my Lemonhead Wreath! Can you believe I made that bad boy while I was sick with pneumonia! I was bored out of my mind just laying around but truly felt like crud! Glad it turned out! lol


  18. I just saw in a magazine where someone took some old rackets and took the net/whatever out of them and had mirrors put in and then hung a couple of them in a “grouping” on the wall. It was so cute!
