Prairie Points Topper




Now that I have the Fall leaves wall hanging up and displayed, I figured I might as well make a new topper for my end table since I still have the Christmas topper on!
So I gathered some leftover blocks and make this topper.
I wanted it to be unique so I added the prairie points.
I did forget to wash the Ric rack since it is 100% cotton and it did stain it but thanks to Tide and shout all the stains came out. Thank God! Lesson learned. It did not even occur to me to wash the Ric rack.

I love it!!! And thank goodness the stains came out! Once again I am reminded that it is better to wash the fabrics first!!!
The prairie points finish it off so beautifully :-)

Isn't it fun to make something from leftovers? Thanks for the heads up about rick rack -- I didn't know that it could stain.

You're all set for Fall with your tabletopper and wall hanging. Very nice. The prairie points finish it off nicely. Rick rack is always a fun addition.

I must be an autumn person because when I see those colors I have to stop and look closer. Love your table topper and the prairie points.
