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.
I love the way this wreath set the tone and welcomed guests to our backyard baseball party! For other baseball party ideas be sure to check out my other posts: Baseball Birthday PartyVintage Coke BottlesChalk Board Score Board and Baseball Cupcake Stand.

    THANK YOU! I am having a “wreath party” for my son’s team…all the moms are getting together to make a baseball craft, and I chose this wreath for us to make! I am no drilling expert so I searched online for advice about the drilling process…your tutorial is the ONLY one that gives a recommended size for the drill bit lol. Thanks to you, I will not have to guess and possibly ruin a ton of balls. Thanks so much!! Yours came out SUPER cute, by the way. :)
