No. 1 — Find a worn in baseball either hiding in your garage or I found mine at a thrift shop for 69 cents.
No. 2 — With a sharp exact-o knife cut around stitching.
No. 3 — Pull all leather off of the ball’s core.
No. 4 — Find where the stitching point ends and slice the leather at that point.
No. 5 — Begin unraveling the red stitching until it is the desired bracelet length, about 5 to 6 inches depending on your wrist size.
No. 6 — Cut off excess leather, making sure not to cut the red stings.
No. 7 — Begin braiding your red stitching to the length of about 2-1/2 inches and tie-off the ends. I added a cute little red button to one side, making tying the bracelet simple. Enjoy!

+ I have to confess I was not the genius who thought this adorable little diy project up, I stumbled upon it via Pinterest! Didn’t it turn out cute?! It’s the perfect addition to any arm party.

    Very cute! Although my husband would certainly be against the idea of cutting up a baseball.
