Introduction: Golfers Halloween Decoration
I have been making small to medium items for years and started carving albeit poorly recently, I love to make all manner of things so for this I wanted an eclectic mix of, well junk and stuff that would normally be thrown away.
I chose a piece of pallet wood, a part of an English elm table top that came from my wife's school, she left over 40 years ago, a ratty old golf ball and golf tees. I ended up choosing the broken golf tee out of the four I had handy.
Topflite 2 golf ball
The end of a one centimetre wooden knitting needle for the club shaft
Black twine for the whipping on the shaft
Tools used a combination multi tool of the Dremel type, cheap and cheerful. A Dewalt DW 135 band saw sandpaper I did use black acrylic paint for the "face". Carved out the eyes and mouth using the grinder and a mixture of diamond bits. With copious sanding for the club head, Added the one cm knitting needle for the club shaft, whipping was black twine
Assembly was all very simple some glue finish was burned linseed oil and white spirit, in the US it's mineral oil I believe.
A simple and very easy instructable, go on give it a try!
