Baseball Wreath

For my mom's birthday in April, I made her a Detroit Tigers Baseball Wreath.  I loved the way it turned out, so I thought I'd share it here.  Now I want to make one for myself because I liked it so much.  My family are huge sports fan, especially the Detroit teams (since we live in Michigan), so I knew she would like this wreath to hang on her door for baseball season.

Kevin had a bucket of old baseballs, so I picked 11 of them and had my dad drill holes through them.

Then I took a metal hanger and used pliers to help straighten it out.  I then strung the baseballs on the wire hanger and connected the two ends, and made a loop for hanging.  The way I connected them wasn't pretty, but it didn't matter because it got covered with a bow.

 I looked at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and JoAnns for a wood Old English D that I could paint, but I no one had one.  I ended up tracing the D on to cardboard, cutting it out (very carefully), and painting it.  I would prefer to have found a wood letter, but the cardboard one looks ok. I bought some orange ribbon and made a bow that I tied to the wire hanger, and used a small piece to hang the "D."

Yep, I definitely need to make one of these for my house!
