I shared my son’s complete (almost complete) room makeover last week (you can see that HERE) and today I’m sharing how I made his baseball diamond bulletin board!
It is just a fun little baseball detail for his room that doesn’t come off as too cutesy, you know?
So, first of all, you need a bulletin board (got mine at Hobby Lobby years ago) and you need to get a hold of some fake grass. They have it at Home Depot or Lowe’s back where they sell carpet. It’s on a huge roll and they can cut it for you with the giant carpet cutting machine… it’s all very exciting! And it’s only a few dollars per linear foot so it’s pretty inexpensive. I needed 2 feet for my bulletin board size.
(pardon the difference in color of grass. I swear it’s the same stuff! It’s amazing what it looks like outside vs. inside)
Trim grass to size.
Google “What does a baseball diamond look like?” to refresh your memory even though you’ve been at no fewer than 2 baseball games a week for the past 3 months. OR just look at this…
Now cut your grass accordingly!
I used the old trick of pinning the string in one place and tying it to a pen to get a nice curve for the infield.
Then I used the piece I had cut out for the curve to create the infield grass. I then glued it all down using some heavy duty spray adhesive and letting it set up overnight.
The next night I used a ruler and a white paint pen and drew on the details of baselines, batter’s box, bases, etc.
I love how it turned out and really, it only took me about an hour or so total once I had gathered all my supplies! Can’t beat that!
Every kid needs a place to pin up their crap awesome stuff… might as well make it cool!
