Madigan made… a Simple Saturday with handmade gift ideas.
You know you’ve married a sports fan when he requests to walk out at your wedding reception to a song from the movie, The Natural.
Yep, my hubby and I were ‘announced’ to our wedding guests to the music from a baseball movie. (It’s a good movie and a great score… we used the music played when Robert Redford’s character hit a dramatic home run. You can see that scene here.)
My husband loves, plays and appreciates many sports. Aside from setting up some golf décor this week, over the past several years I’ve been (very) slowly working on some sports themed décor for our basement family room. I need to get back to working on a few more projects down there.
With Father’s Day around the corner I realized that many of the projects I created for that room would make great gifts for any sports fan. So, I poked around the internet and found a bunch of other DIY sports ideas that could be fun handmade gifts, too. I pooled them all together today to inspire you to make something for your sports fan!
