It’s fall and I am all about cleaning out and cleaning up and today’s project is simple, fun and quite a creative reuse of tennis balls. Your family is probably like mine and rather than tossing out those old tennis balls you store them. Storage leads to clutter and clutter just is not pretty to look at.

Gather your supplies, work outside and take in the great outdoor air as the seasons change. Who’s ready to make a simple DIY to create a tennis ball hanger?

A Tennis Ball

Here’s the How-T0
TIPS & TRICKS
Create your eyes before your start and make sure to use stickers that adhere to ANY surface.
Use a lot of caution when cutting with a utility knife and a very stable work area so that the tennis ball does not slip.
The back hole just needs to be big enough to put the tip of the suction cup into so easy does it when cutting.
Rotate the suction cup to hold the tennis ball hanger at the best angle for use.
Do not over-extend the mouth cut, or the mouth will not close and hold items snug.
There are dozens of uses for this tennis ball hanger, from pens and pencils to earbud and even change inside without opening the mouth.
The suction cup is what allows this to become a hanger, and not roll all over the place. You need the suction cup to make it stationary.
