Crafts for the Sports Fan

Update:

Yes. Yes. Yes.
The Giants Win the 2014 World Series!
Congratulations to my home team.

and now back to the original post:

"The Giants Win the Pennant!" 

After five nail-biting playoff games, my favorite baseball team is going to the World Series--for the third time in five years!  So how do you celebrate baseball by crafting?

Two years ago, I altered a tin can to celebrate their 2012 world series win.   You can see it here.   

I've updated this sporty & sweet idea using 6" hinged jars, which I'm sending to two of my favorite Giants fans living in San Francisco.     
SF Giants
After printing out the team logo, I made two versions, the one above, accented with orange & white twine, and the one pictured below, with black & white twine. 
Baseball Crafts
With Halloween and Autumn in the air, it is easy to find orange chocolate kisses.  Just look for the bag with the orange, silver and red kisses, and eat save the red ones, leaving you with the perfect blend of orange and silver to complement the SF Giants colors.

This idea is easily adaptable to any sports team.  With football season in full swing (oops, still got baseball on my brain), think of all the color possibilities you can conjure up!   What's your favorite team?  Have fun with this idea.  And in the meantime, I'll be glued to my TV next week to "root-root-root for the home team!"

  2. As of last night the series is tied 3-3 :( Hope they win it tonight.

    The gift idea is super cute for any sport. But I know a lot of family and friends that would love it like this.
