I am so thrilled that so many of you wanted to know how I made the baseball wreath that I took both on television and to the Home Show last week. It was not a hard project, just took some time. And many baseballs died on behalf of this project. Just warning you cuz’ it may hurt your heart a little.
First, I went to my beloved Hobby Lobby and got a wreath ring thing. Did you see the video I made that day in Hobby Lobby showing you how I twirled baton? Hobby Lobby will either eventually sponsor me, or kick me out. LOL. You can watch below or click here.
I would like to think I still got it. Lol. “Clean up in aisle 2”.
Then we (and by “we”, I mean Mr. Magic) drilled holes in a bunch of baseballs. I think we used 16 total.
We clipped off just one ring of the metal wreath thing and fed that thru the baseball holes. You can see where the arrow is on this picture that we had 2 loose ends that we somehow had to keep together.
We tried to just feed the wire thru the closest baseballs thinking that squeezing 2 wires into the hole would be snug enough to hold it together, but the wreath is HEAVY and I just couldn’t go on tv the next day with the wreath flopping apart and baseballs rolling everywhere. Can you imagine???
So, Mr. Magic used Gorilla Glue to shoot down into the holes of the last few balls which were on the bottom…..
And we let it dry laying down overnight. Our hope was that the glue would give it the additional strength to stay together. It worked!
This is Jodi. She is my friend, my neighbor and the official bow maker for the Magic Brush. She added the burlap strip to hang the wreath with (we literally tied each end around the metal frame in between 2 balls), she attached my son’s little black bat and Mr. Magic’s favorite Royal’s hat to wreath. She made it pretty for me. xoxoxoxo
And viola! It took us less than 2 hours to complete the whole baseball wreath!
And we reused in in our World Series front porch decor this year also!

Love this post! I am definitely trying this wreath..:)
Where can I find or buy used baseballs!?
I go to used sporting goods stores or Craigslist!
Go Royals! Love how everything came together beautifully on the porch. This festival wreath is good for April through October 🙂 Nice job.
I am so late to the game on this but man, I absolutely adore these baseball themed ideas! I “found” you, just last night, on YouTube & have already fallen in love with your amazing work. You have some truly inspirational pieces & I’m SO excited to get my DIY groove on. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us!
