I need to brag for a second. I married a wonderful man, who is very supportive of my desire to have this blog. He also has plenty of ideas for me and this time, HE wanted to be the one manning the project. I, of course, was whole-heartedly behind him.
We live near a very nice Nature Park, and it butts right up with a golf course. When the snow melts, the men of the house go almost daily and collect the golf balls the winter has saved up. This results in a large bag of golf balls that we have had for quite some time, being that neither myself or my husband golf. The Mr decided to give some of them up to make a fun Christmas Tree decoration.
A LOT of old Golf Balls
beads or buttons for decorations
Mr started by commandeering an old Paint can lid. Trim the foam tree if necessary and secure to the base. Glue the balls to the base and the tree wrapping around the foam tree. Continue gluing balls around the tree.
When the glue has set, head outside and spray paint the tree with Green paint. Mr intentionally left the top ball off, so that he could use a yellow golf ball as the 'star.'
Allow paint to dry and re-coat if necessary.
Glue adornments, buttons or beads, and string an extra set of small Christmas lights around your tree. OR if you prefer a different look. Simply spray paint green and top with fake snow. I was pleasantly surprised with how well I liked the end result, and the kids loved helping!
Does your husband like helping you craft? I had a lot of fun watching all the guys in my family bond while making this tree, which is exactly what we should be doing during this season of the year.
