Sports Fan DIY: Sports Team Wall Hanger

orlando city home decor

I have a few wall hangers for different seasons and holidays, and I've always thought they looked pretty easy to make. Naturally, I wanted one with a sports theme! After sitting on my to-do list for a while, I'm happy to report that this DIY project was not only simple, it's practically fool-proof! I plan to make another wall hanger for football season and maybe as a gift for another sports fan. Check out the steps below and I bet you'll be inspired to make one, too!

Here's what you'll need:

  • Wooden pre-painted letters (I got these at Michael's)
  • Wooden circle (Also from Michael's)
  • Glue gun
  • Pencil
  • Black Sharpie
  • Acrylic paint 
  • Foam brush
  • Thick ribbon for hanging
  • Ribbon for bow
  • Scissors (not pictured)

Apply several coats of paint to the shape you're using for the sports ball. In my case, it's a soccer ball, so I used white for the base color.

Go over your pencil outline with a Sharpie marker and once you're done, use your pencil to erase any stray lines.

Line up your letters as you'd like them to hang. Roll out thick ribbon alongside, so it runs the full length. Roll out 5-6 additional inches to leave room for the hanging loop at the top.

Hot glue the letters and soccer ball (or whatever additional pieces you like!) to the ribbon.

Create a loop at the top with the extra 5-6 inches of ribbon and secure the end with hot glue.

Here's where you can get really creative! Cut long strands of decorative ribbons in varying colors and textures. Use them to create a pretty bow and hot glue it to the top of the wall hanger. Trim the ends as necessary.
