Baseball Snowman: DIY Christmas Decor For Sports Lovers
I have a family member who is a true baseball fan. She loves everything and anything that has a baseball. She told me she had seen a baseball snowman, however, she felt it was pricey.
So, I decided to recreate a similar version using some leftover greenery, berries, fabric, paint, etc. to try to lower the cost, and I am really pleased with how the baseball snowman turned out! I think he is cute!
- Wooden round, six inches
- Three baseballs
- White paint
- Faux snow
- Christmas pick
- Christmas material
- Black twine
- Modge podge
- Hot glue
- E6000 glue
- Black and orange vinyl
I started by painting the wooden round white.
2. Glue the baseball to the round
Once the paint dried, I used a combination of hot glue and E6000 glue to hold the first baseball in place.
3. Add faux snow
I used Modge Podge to cover the base and then added the faux snow.
4. Glue the second and third baseballs
After a couple of hours, I glued the second baseball using the same combination of hot glue and E6000 glue. I repeated the same step, a couple of hours later, adding the third baseball.
5. Make the snowman's face
I used the Cricut to make the baseball snowman's face. However, you can do it freehand.
6. Make the scarf and hat
I cut a piece of Christmas material, 9 1/2" long by 4 1/2" wide to use for the hat. I also cut another piece, 14' long by 2" wide to use for the scarf.
I made an inside fold, about 1/4 inch, to the piece of material I used for his hat. Then, I hot glued the material all around the baseball to simulate a hat.
I then gathered the excess material on top of the baseball with a piece of black twine. I then made small cuts on top of the material to simulate a fringe.
I folded in half, length-wise, the 14" by 2" piece of material to make his scarf, and made small cuts to both ends of the material to simulate a fringe. I then hot-glued the scarf in place.
7. Embellish the base
For the final step, I added a Christmas pick and greenery to the bottom of the wooden round.
