Repurposed Tennis Ball Container Halloween Decor By Katie Shea Design

This Halloween Decoration was created as part of a sponsored post for Voya Financial.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

One of my most favorite things to do is to repurpose everything I can.  I have been doing this for years and have driven my family crazy with all my little collections of bottles, cans etc.

I even had my son in law smuggle out of his house to me an over sized gelato container because my daughter wouldn’t contribute it to my hobby or as she says “my addiction” LOL!!

Every penny counts especially when you are baby boomers like my husband and I and have an eye on retirement further down the road.  Repurposing is a great way to save money and explore your own creativity and imagination.

So when I walked down the fall holiday aisle while shopping in Michael’s I spotted this fabulous Purple Top Hat Headband with Black Flower & Spider  and instantly was mesmerized by it.

I had already been working on a project for Voya Financial repurposing tennis gear into a craft project.  So I already had the bug of creativity running through my veins when I happenstanced on this amazing, inspiring hat.

I stood in the aisle and tried to imagine how I could incorporate this hat into a repurposing project.

While my brain was spinning I walked further down the aisle and came across a display of Halloweenish socks and temporary tattoos.

At that moment it all came together for me. I already had a tennis ball canister that was just screaming to be dressed up!!

I gathered the rest of my supplies running through Michael’s eager to get home to pull together my vision of my Halloween character that was going to sit in the middle of my pumpkin patch.

It is that time in the Northeast that when you get a day with a bit of a chill and you become someone with fall fever.  Do you have “Fall Fever” yet?  Do you have any retired tennis gear that you can repurpose?  Would love to hear from you!!  Happy Repurposing!!

Thank you Voya Financial for inspiring me using the idea of repurposing tennis gear for my first Halloween craft project of this year!
