Rackets and Skates and Pucks- Oh My! (Repurposed Sports Equipment Ideas)

Rackets and Skates and Pucks- Oh My! (Repurposed Sports Equipment Ideas)

Last year around this time, I put together a round-up of Repurposed Classroom Items (globes, rulers, desks, etc.). September is all about back-to-school, after all! But along those same lines, it conjures up the idea of Friday Night Lights and all things sports. Upcycling sports equipment is something I’ve dabbled in, but only with tennis rackets. I’ve upcycled racket heads into oversized cross stitch

Remember these?

And repurposed the racket handles into funky necklace pendants

Available in my Etsy shop!

But there are some seriously amazing ideas out there- using everything from golf clubs, to hockey sticks, to trophies and medals. Let me show you some of my favorites…and maybe it’ll encourage you to dust off that old, neglected sports equipment and give it a new lease on life.

Seriously, though- aren’t these ideas amazing? There is truly something for everyone here- no matter the sport you like or a DIY that speaks to you. Players, spectators, and coaches alike can put their old equipment to good reuse- the possibilities (and ideas) are endless!

Craft on!
