Who is ready for baseball season?! Here in St. Louis, Baseball is a BIG DEAL and I can’t wait until that Home Opener. I’m even ready to get my house ready which is why I wanted to share how to make a baseball wreath for your front door! I love that you can customize it to your favorite home team if you want!
How to Make a Baseball Wreath
- 12 ” Wire wreath form – Use at least a double, preferably one with four rings for extra stability
- 11 baseballs – I think used looks best, but you can use new too. Look at used sporting goods stores
- Glue – I used a glue called 9001 and it worked really well. If you can’t find that I would suggest something that says “industrial strength” on the package.
- All purpose moss mat
- Paper Plate
- Scrap fabric or burlap
- Black paint
- Small paint brush
- Hot glue gun and glue
Lay out your moss mat face down
Place your wreath form on the mat with a baseball on top
Using your sharpie, trace the inside of the wreath form including the width of the baseball.
Do the same for the outside of the from.
Using your scissors cut out the traced portion of the moss mat, which should be wider than the actual wreath form.
Rough up the edges by snipping little pieces of the moss away and pulling small pieces, to give it a not so uniformed look.
Glue the wire wreath form to the moss mat.
Turn over and set on a paper plate to dry so it won’t stick to your work surface. Place baseballs on top to weight it down to ensure everything sticks and dries evenly.
After the glue dries, glue the baseballs on.
Take the leftover moss and cut into small pieces. Using your glue and moss pieces, glue the pieces in between the gaps of the baseballs.
