Here’s an easy “do it yourself” to make a bracelet out of a baseball! Enjoy!

 

What you need:

  • a baseball (makes two bracelets)
  • Xacto knife/box cutter

Now take the baseball and cut around both sides of the seem.

Once you have done that you need to peel off the seem. (This is when you might notice you need to go back over, and cut leather a little bit more.)

After you have done that, find where the red stitching starts, and cut the seem there. Then cut the rest of it in half. (Sidenote: I usually wash the two halves with warm water and dish soap to try and get rid of some of the stickiness from the baseball.)

Then you’ll want to unlace part of the seam in order to extend the length of the red string.

Then cut off the excess leather, and do this to the other side as well.

Then just tie it on your wrist, and now you have a baseball bracelet! (Notice: The bracelet will be curved at first, but after you wear it a few times, it will straighten out.)
