Inspired by the ever popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this craft can be used as a keychain, backpack charm, ornament, or just to have hanging around!


You will need:
-  Old golf balls
-  Eye screws
-  Green paint - either acrylic or spray paint
-  Hole punch
-  Small googly eyes
-  Craft foam
-  Drill or rotary tool
-  Black permanent marker
-  Keychain findings
-  Glue

Here is the video tutorial:





Directions:

1.  Drill a hole into each of the golf balls.
2.  Screw in the eye screws.
3.  Paint golf balls green.  TIP:  If you use acrylic paint, that is fine.  If it is to be used as an ornament or just hanging around, the acrylic should be fine.  If you are using it as a keychain or a backpack charm, you should either use spray paint that adheres to plastic, but you use the acrylic paint, you can use a spray polyurethane to give it extra protection.
4.  Take a piece of paper and draw a mask.  Fit it around a golf ball and adjust the size accordingly.  Then trace the piece of paper on the craft foam and cut out.  
5.  Take the paper hole punch and punch out eye holes, in the craft foam.  
6.  Insert googly eyes in the eye holes.  Put glue behind the eyes and the mask and glue it onto the golf ball.  Glue all the way to the ends of the mask and wrap it around the golf ball, gluing in place.
7.  Take a permanent marker and draw on the mouth. 
8.  Use pliers to open the jump ring on the keychain and attach it to the eye screw.  Close jump ring.

That's it!  Now use them to decorate a room, a keychain or a backpack!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

How did you seal these? I'm making an ornament and the permanent marker keeps wiping off.

Awesome! Wonder if you can dye the golf balls?
