The winter Olympics may be over, but you can still add a little sporty spice to your home. If you have old baseball, golf, billiard or croquet equipment collecting dust in your home, these sports crafts are perfect for you. Take a look at these ideas and hit a DIY home run!
If you’re like me and played croquet a sum total of one time after watching Heathers, turn your old set into some way-cool wall art like this vignette from HGTV’s Cousins Undercover. Move over, starburst mirror! These mallets really make a statement.
When I played softball, my dad always told me to “keep my eye on the ball.” With this baseball rod finial by Brian Patrick Flynn, you won’t be able to take your eye OFF the ball!
Rather hit the links than some balls in a batting cage? These golf club drapery rods, also by Brian Patrick Flynn, may be more your speed.
Speaking of golf, colorful tees and golf balls make for an adorable wedding favor (particularly if it’s held at a country club). Head to DIYNetwork to see the how-to instructions.
Billiard balls are striking wine stoppers. Take a cue
stick from Michele Beschen and try the craft with her tutorial here.
