It’s that can’t eat, can’t sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of baseball letter board! Yes, I’m back with another DIY letter board and yes, I just used that phrase AGAIN. Just can’t help myself on either!
I’m still obsessed with this Walmart letter board for $10 and as long as the ideas keep coming, I’m going to keep sharing! I’ve actually been sitting on this DIY baseball sign idea since I first made over the letter board for back to school.
Now that the World Series is here and baseball season is almost over, it seemed like the perfect time to share.. (insert palm to the face emoji here!).. Life got a little busy these past couple months but I know you baseball fans are committed year round, soooo this one’s for you!
First of all, how easy is this material list?! The letter board is only sold in stores so run on over to Walmart, maybe check your app before hand to make sure they have it! Also, if you can’t find the board at your local Walmart, Hobby Lobby also sells a white letter board, same size but it would be $36 with your coupon. Just another option if you’re desperate!
I found the adhesive backed felt at Hobby Lobby. Regular felt would also work but the adhesive backed saves you from gluing every line of stitching. You could throw this baby together during the 7th inning stretch!
I free hand cut the baseball stitching. You could use a bowl or any object that might help you out with the curved portion. The great thing is, if you mess up, you’ll have plenty of felt left over to try again. The lady at Hobby Lobby recommended an exacto knife for cutting the felt but I found a pair of sharp scissors to work just as well.
Once you have all the stitching, the final step is to peel the backing off the felt and stick each piece onto the board. That’s it! So incredibly easy.
My favorite thing about letter boards is the versatility in sayings. Unlike typical baseball signs you might purchase, you can switch up the phrase as often as you like. You can use it on a food table for your end of the year baseball party. You can put it in your child’s room and surprise them with different phrases on game days. You can leave it in your kitchen if you’re just a whole baseball loving family. So many options and I just love it, I hope you do too!
Love this?! Pin for later…
