The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. Are you tired of using the same old thing on your front door? Think outside the wreath.
Batter up. Does take me out to the ballgame bring back good memories? America’s pastime is a great spring or summer front door theme. Gather some gear, like a glove, ball, and bat. Secure glove and bat together using zip ties. Attach the ball, sewing through the stitches in the ball. Weave into the glove. Use what you have. Check out second-hand sports stores or even borrow pieces.
Keep your door out of the penalty box. Grab a hockey stick, puck, and gloves. It’s best to use old or discarded equipment and gear. The pieces will take some wear and tear.
Zip ties are your friend. They’re adjustable, very strong, and incredibly inexpensive. Just keep them around for projects like this. Your goal for this door is a fun DIY.
Make a mini goal post with PVC pipes. Be sure to use outdoor safe adhesive like gorilla glue when assembling. Partially deflate a football so it lays flat in the back. Attach with a zip tie.
Make a personal pennant to cheer on your favorite athlete.
Stay on par with this golf inspired front door. Find a smaller preferably vintage golf bag. Add a hat, clubs, and some balls. Make an oversized scorecard or find a golf-related sign.
That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday. I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. To learn more, check out the Country Door blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God Bless.
