In this Instructable I will show you how to make a desk ornament out of some easy to find materials.

Step 1: materials

The materials needed for this project are:

- golf tees
- a golf ball
- hot glue gun
- glue for the glue gun
- paint (optional)
use that damn thing as a flail head or a throwing ball
Keep it on your desk until the zombie apocalypse.
i used radio active nails in fused yuribittom (an unstable nuclear isotope)
it pretty much rapes<br />
For the golfing nut in the family. Cool! I know you described it as a desk ornament, but any nifty ideas on how to incorporate a hook for a tree ornament? Anyone?
&nbsp;I would:<br /> <br /> a) Take a X-ACTO or similar craft knife and cut a notch about one centimeter or so from the tip (the side farthest from the golf ball) of whichever tee you wish to be the top.<br /> <br /> b) Aquire some sewing thread (also called floss -- not the stuff for your teeth) and tie a nice, tight knot around that notch from step 'a.' &nbsp;P'raps double it around to ensure it's tight. &nbsp;Make sure there's one to three inches left over, depending on how far from the branch you want it to hang. &nbsp;<br /> <br /> c) &nbsp;Bend one side of a paperclip so that it can fit over the branch of a tree. &nbsp;Tie the thread (or floss, if you prefer) around the other, still coiled side of the paperclip.<br /> <br /> d) &nbsp;Place the finished ornament onto a tree branch.<br /> <br /> e) &nbsp;Be merry.<br /> <br /> f)* &nbsp;Visit my blog, <a href="http://ramblingsrobert.wordpress.com" rel="nofollow">http://ramblingsrobert.wordpress.com</a>.<br /> *Note that step 'f' is purely optional. &nbsp;Also, forgive my shameless self-promotion.<br />
drill a hole through it or glue a string to it possibly
Has anyone tried any other type of glue than hot glue ? Maybe super glue or something ? The one I made is pretty fragile :(
Fabri-Tac works on everything!
&nbsp;i think wood glue might work well. also: this looks more like a spiky ball of death (for throwing at someone you don't like) than an ornament...
OMG thank you, i was making this originally for show but today i realized it was my grandmas birthday! these make an excellent present. (but there kinda hard to wrap) :D
pretty digital <sup>_</sup> Think il dip the tees in some UV paint .. <br/>
That is a pretty cool idea, and really simple too. If you had enough of the different colored tees, you could make patterns and such too. Bravo !
ditto to Goodhart's comment!
Thanks that would be a good idea :]
How many tees does it use?
This is sooooooo space age! Can't wait to oaint mine gold and add some glitter to the tips. Nuclear thanks!
Glitter? How about Enriched Uranium?
How many tees did it take for you to make this? Great 'ible, and pretty quick as an ornament!
umm I don't remember for sure but I guess around 20 or a little more. I no longer have it, it broke when I stepped on it <sup>.</sup><br/>
lol make another one then, it looks so easy! When I get the chance to score around 20 tees I'll definetely make this!
so fun to look at:)
Ha thats awesome
neat idea!
dip one in plasti-dip or something like that. it would look so cool!
liked it better unpainted
