Simple DIY Baseball Stand

Looking for an easy way to display a special baseball? Maybe it is a ball the whole Little League team signed at the end of the season. Maybe it is your first home run. It doesn’t have to be special to anyone but you to deserve a place of honor. We decided to make a special ball for Father’s Day, and put it on our simple DIY baseball stand.

This project is part of Craft Lightning – Father’s Day. A whole week of 15-minute or less crafts that make great Father’s Day gifts! I’m co-hosting this series with Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and Danielle from Busy Mom’s Helper. Check out their Father’s Day gift ideas below, along with lots of other crafty folks who are joining in!

Since we were making this for Father’s Day, I had my son write “#1 Dad” on the ball.

Place the ball on the stand, and you’ve got a great Father’s Day gift for your #1 Dad… or just a simple DIY baseball stand to use to display your favorite game ball… or make several for all your favorite baseballs!
