Creative Ideas for Reusing Old Sports Gear
One thing that all parents can count on as a certainty of life is that our children will outgrow everything they own. This includes outgrowing their old sports gear. Sure, you can donate an old set of football pads or an outgrown tennis racket to your local Goodwill but there are also some fun ways that you can reuse these items around your house.
Football Helmet Planter
Add some greenery to your sports memorabilia room by converting your child’s old football helmet into a planter. Simply line the helmet with a plant-friendly piece of material, like burlap, then fill it with potting soil. The helmet is now ready for your favorite plant, flowers or even herbs.
Tennis Racket Jewelry Organizer
There is no need to go out and buy a mesh jewelry organizer if you have an old tennis racket lying around. Paint the tennis racket to match your daughter’s room and then mount it on the wall and she will have a custom DIY jewelry organizer made with momma’s love.
Baseball Bat Furniture
Turn your little slugger’s old baseball bats into a nightstand, bench or other usable piece of furniture. The leg of a plant stand can be replaced with a baseball bat and used as a nightstand in your child’s baseball-themed bedroom. Turn a boring garden bench into a baseball fan’s delight by replacing the back slats of the bench with baseball bats. Baseball bats can be used in a variety of ways so let your imagination flow and get creative.
What is the most creative way you’ve reused your child’s outgrown sports gear?
