Introduction: Golf Tee Desk Ornament

About: I love to snowboard, hang out with friends, explore, and have a good time :)

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)

Step 2: Start Gluing It Together

Plug in the hot glue gun and let it warm up.

To attatch the golf tees just spread glue on the bottom of the tee then quickly put the tee onto the golf ball.

you want to glue the tees on from the top down so they are even on the golf ball (see pictures). they will not always fit perfectly and there will sometimes be small gaps. Thats ok they are barley noticeable once you are done (also see picture).

Step 3: Finishing Up

Basically its done now it only took me about 15 minutes to make so its a fast project.

Now you can also choose to paint it if you want I chose to paint mine red. Make sure you cover the whole entire thing I had to flip it a bunch of times because its hard to get all the sides coated.

    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?

     I would:

    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.

    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.'  P'raps double it around to ensure it's tight.  Make sure there's one to three inches left over, depending on how far from the branch you want it to hang.  

    c)  Bend one side of a paperclip so that it can fit over the branch of a tree.  Tie the thread (or floss, if you prefer) around the other, still coiled side of the paperclip.

    d)  Place the finished ornament onto a tree branch.

    e)  Be merry.

    f)*  Visit my blog, http://ramblingsrobert.wordpress.com.
    *Note that step 'f' is purely optional.  Also, forgive my shameless self-promotion.

    Has anyone tried any other type of glue than hot glue ? Maybe super glue or something ? The one I made is pretty fragile :(

     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...

    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 !
