Hey friends! It’s Abbey here from The Cards We Drew! Spring is finally here and in my family that means BASEBALL season is in full gear. My husband has played baseball recreationally and professionally all his life. So when his high school baseball team ends, his men’s baseball team begins…which means us “baseball wives” get a chance to bring the kids out, hang out, and watch our husbands and boyfriends play. I always found cute clothes for my son to wear to baseball games, but now that I have a GIRL it’s even more fun! So I decided to make my very own DIY Baseball Bow Headband!

DIY Baseball Bow Headband from The Cards We Drew

This wasn’t hard at all to make except for the initial process of taking apart a baseball.

Here’s what you need:



Hot Glue


How to:

Start by taking your ball apart. I used a combination of a knife and scissors to take it apart.

skin your baseballAfter the ball was skinned I used scissors to carefully cut close to the seams of the ball.

Cut off the stitching of the baseball

Once you cut your seams off the ball, then you’ll want to create three “loops” using the seams. Two of the loops will create your bow and the third gets cut in half to create the ends of the bow.

make three loops with the seamsFrom there, you hot glue your bow together…glue the two “loops” to each other and then hot glue the loop that was cut in half to the center of each loop to create a full “bow”.

After it was hot glued together, I took a scrap piece of fabric to glue over the top of the hot glued spot so it wouldn’t scratch her head.  And here’s the finished product!

    Sometimes baseball teams will allow you to purchase tickets
    plus parking for less than if you bought both by
    themselves. Every championship team needs an otherwise-unsung player to step up in a big
    moment during the postseason. Tickets are priced at $1,250, $1,000, $600, $300 and $150 exclusive of service
    charges and is restricted to a limit of 10 per person.
