DIY Baseball Wreath

The sun is shining, the snow is melting – this only means one thing. It’s almost spring baseball season in St. Louis! As any good St. Louis resident knows, spring is meant for baseball. And as every homeowner knows, spring wreaths are necessary decorations. Insert my DIY Baseball Wreath!

Materials:

  • 11 Baseballs (I picked up a 12-pack of practice balls at Sports Authority for $17, but it’s even better if you have some old ones laying around!)
  • Wire coat hanger (the thicker, the better!)
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Red ribbon (I used a regular, red striped ribbon to hang it, and burlap for the bow)
  • Drill with 1/4 inch drill bit

Instructions:

  1. Drill directly through each baseball. It’s easier if you have something or someone to hold them still!
  2. Straighten your coat hanger wire as much as possible.
  3. Thread the balls onto the coat hanger. Shape as needed.
  4. Twist the ends of the coat hangers together tightly and trim. It’s easier if you use a pair of pilers to tighten them up – it also helps prevent cuts from the sharp wire! Leave about two inches on either side of the end.
  5. Add your bow to the top with floral wire and hang!

Even though my mother is Martha Stewart’s top nemesis, I’m a terrible bow maker. This tutorial helped me! DIY Baseball Wreath | Glatz & Glamour

I’m really in love with how it turned out – I still may add some St. Louis flair. You could do this with tennis balls, softball balls, even hockey pucks (which depending on the St. Louis Blues’ playoff run, might just happen!)
