Spring means baseball in eastern North Carolina -- and odds are good that you and your family are spending plenty of time at the ballpark. If you don't have a child or grandchild who plays, your neighbor probably does!

 Making a baseball wreath is a fun way to recycle used baseballs and show your love of the great American game. And it makes a wonderful housewarming gift for a baseball family.

 This version requires the use of a drill -- but you also can insert small screws into each baseball, twist wire around each screw and attach the baseballs to the wreath form with the wire.
