I wanted to create a unique way to welcome guests to my son’s recent baseball birthday party. For this birthday party, I thought a baseball wreath would look cool hanging on the door as guests arrived.
To start the wreath, I straightened out a metal coat hanger.
I wanted the wreath to have more of a vintage look, so I picked up some used baseballs at Play It Again Sports. I used 11 baseballs for the wreath, which was a the perfect number for the length of the coat hanger and to make the wreath a nice circular shape.
The most labour intensive part of the project was drilling holes into the baseballs. For this part, I enlisted the help of my Dad. He had a vice that held the baseballs while we drilled holes through them. We used a 1/8′ drill bit so that the coat hanger would fit nicely through the holes.
I painted a wooden letter white and then added some red stripes to make it look like a baseball. Next, I tied some fishing line around the ‘B’ so I could hang it in the middle of the wreath.
I added some blue and red ribbon to the top of the wreath to finish it off.
