I have a fun repurposed baseball wreath in honor of Major League Baseball official opening day. My nephew Bubba has played or coached baseball his entire life. He started out playing at the age of 4. He played little league for years, and actually went to the Sr. Little League World Series in Kissimmee Florida where his team placed second. Bubba played in High for four years (pitcher), and then played at UNC Charlotte, and Volunteer State Jr. College in Gallatin TN (infield) After that he was drafted by the Detroit Tigers Organization for two years. Then he played in the Independent Professional League in Florence Ky. (The Florence Freedom) Since then he’s been coaching where he went to high school. He is currently the infield coach. So, long story short, his wife Anna wanted to make a baseball wreath for the front door of their new home.
How to make a repurposed baseball wreath from old game balls
Carefully drill a hole in the middle of the baseball
Bubba got right to work drilling through the repurposed baseballs.
Thread wire through baseballs
We tested to make sure the coat hanger would go through the middle.
A sturdy wire hanger works best for a repurposed baseball wreath
We started out trying to use 14 baseballs on a piece of wire I had in my stash.
Fold wire to lock in baseballs
Cut off excess wire
Eleven baseballs make the perfect wreath
