Step 2

Plug in the glue gun and allow it to heat up.

Step 3

Place a golf tee onto the side of the flowerpot with the head of the tee facing up and the point of the tea even with the bottom of the flowerpot. Glue the tee in place with the hot glue gun.

Step 4

Line up golf tees in the same fashion around the entire outer edge of the flowerpot. All the tees should be facing the same direction with the heads at the top and the points along the bottom edge of the flowerpot. Space them evenly and glue them into place.


Step 5

Use the paintbrush to write "Golf Lover" or "Pencils and Pens" above the golf tees with the acrylic paint. Allow the paint and glue to dry completely before using the pencil holder.

Step 6

Plug in the glue gun and allow it to heat up.


Step 7

Place a golf tee onto the wooden frame with the point facing toward the outer border. Glue the tee into place with the hot glue gun.

Step 8

Position another golf tee onto the wooden frame with the point facing toward the inner border. Place this tee as close as possible to the first tee and glue it into place with the hot glue gun.


Step 9

Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the golf tees, alternating the direction of the golf tees until you reach a corner. Stop gluing golf tees and leave the corner of the frame free of golf tees.

Step 10

Begin positioning golf tees again on the other side of the corner. Place the first tee facing the same way as the last tee before the corner as shown in the diagram. Continue placing and gluing tees around the entire frame in the same fashion, leaving the corners empty.

Step 11

Cut the Styrofoam balls in half and glue one half Styrofoam ball into each frame corner to simulate golf balls.
