Pink Golf Ball Poodle



This is a really cute project to give as a gift or to do with kids.  How cute would it be to have the pink poodle as a centerpieces at a wedding for avid golfers, or even for a golf outing, little girl's birthday party?



Of course, you don't need a reason to make them!  Do it because it's fun!  Here's the video tutorial for the Pink Poodle:


Here's the link on how to make the black and white Golf Ball Poodle.

You will need:
-  Seven golf balls
-  Pink acrylic paint
-  Pink felt
-  Pink pom poms
-  Hot glue
-  Golf tee
-  Two google eyes
-  Small black bead
-  Wood bead



Directions:

1.  Paint all of the golf balls pink.  I found the caps for bottled water make excellent stands so the golf balls don't roll away.  It will leave a mark, but you can touch it up and just have those parts glued to the inside.

2.  Paint wood bead and golf tee pink.

3.  Cut ears from felt.  I folded my felt in half and did a free hand cut.  I folded it in half so both would come out identical.  

4.  Hot glue pom poms to bottom of ears.

5.  Start gluing the golf balls together.  First glue the bottom four.  Then the two directly above.  Make sure you have a dab of glue wherever the balls touch one another.  Finally, glue on the head.  

6.  Glue on the golf tee as the tail.  Take four smaller pom poms and glue around the base.  Take one larger pom pom and glue at the tip of the tail.

7.  Glue on wood bead for the snout.

8.  Glue on small black bead for the nose.  

9.  Glue on google eyes.  

10.  Glue on ears.

11.  Glue on large pom poms on top of head, between ears.

Viola!  You are done!  

Have fun and Happy Crafting!

Thanks so much Cheryl! I love your blog! I especially loved the little girl outfits the other day! I wish I could sew. I come from a long line of sewers on my dad's side, but I got the non-sewing gene from my mother. Try as I might, I can't even get the machine properly threaded! I'll stick to non-sewing crafts and admire those of you who can! Thank you again!
