I wanted to create a tiered stand for displaying treats when everyone comes over to watch a baseball game. It was time to get creative!
I purchased a dozen baseballs and drilled holes all the way through five of them with a 7/8″ drill bit.
At Hobby Lobby I found a wooden platter that was 14″ across and some wood circles 10″ and 6 1/2″.
The smaller circles were thin, so I glued two of them together with wood glue to give them more stability.
I used the 7/8″ drill bit and drilled a hole through the center of each of the re-enforced circles and the wooden platter.
I painted all of the circles white and painted a 7/8″ dowel white.
I used an industrial strength adhesive to glue four balls (un-drilled) to the base of the platter for ‘feet’.
I used a fine black Sharpie and a red Sharpie to draw the stitching onto the discs and the platter.
This is starting to look like a baseball theme!
I took the balls I had drilled through and stacked onto the dowel, fed it through the discs and the platter. For the bottom of the dowel, I drilled partially through a baseball and glued it onto the bottom of the dowel. A small dollop of adhesive was added to the baseballs above and below the discs for extra stability.
t the top I used one baseball, also only partially drilled and glued it to the top of the dowel. There you have it, a fun themed cupcake or snack stand ready for all of your baseball fans, or your favorite local team!
