It is that time!! Baseball Season is in full effect - well at least Spring Training has started. The players have reported and we are ready for them to start working out and getting ready for the 2016 season. I decided to move away from the traditional Spring holidays for our door wreath and focus on a fun sporting holiday instead! A little disclosure - Jeremy is a HUGE baseball fan so this is totally for him!
Baseball Door Wreath
12 baseballs - new or used
Steel wire - 55 pounds
6 inch 1/8th inch drill bit
Ribbon - baseball themed or team colors
This wreath does take a little more time than my normal door wreaths but it is so worth it. It really turned out great.
Jeremy was the main creator on this project and Jude even helped. Carefully drill a hole into the middle each of the baseballs, we used a 6 inch drill bit to make sure the bit would go all the way through the ball with out any issues.
Once all of the baseballs have holes in them simply string the baseballs onto the steel wire. Make sure all of the balls are "squished" together. This will make the round wreath shape appear.
To make the round wreath shape stay in place make sure the ends of the wire are carefully tied tightly together. This will make sure that the wire doesn't droop or loose shape. Also, makes sure the wreath does not fall apart!
Once the shape is what you want, add some ribbon for some extra flair. I found some great baseball ribbon that I loved and added a simple loose bow at the top of the wreath. Another idea would be to use your team colors as the ribbon decorations.
Hang using a sturdy wreath hanger due to the weight of this wreath.
I love coming home to this wreath - it shows we are ready for spring and baseball!! I wish I had done this when we had a baseball party for Jude!
Are you ready for baseball? What team are you cheering on this 2016 season?
