Only 4 days left until Father's Day and nothing for Dad? No worries - you can make 50 of these in an hour between now and Sunday. Thanks to you, your dad will be the trendiest guy on the golf course. ;)
I made these for my dad - a huge lover of golf, who instilled in me a love for golf. He's the only person I know who can play an entire round with a 7 iron and a putter. I have so many precious memories on the golf course with him.
Here he is with my grandpa, who is almost 90 and still has a mean swing.
My dad likely hasn't heard of the DIY paint dipping trend, but I'm hoping he'll still appreciate these colorful tees made with love.
This would make for a great kids craft project. All you need are some long golf tees and your favorite colors of craft paint:
How to Make Paint Dipped Golf Tees
2. Put a dab of paint on a paper place and roll the bottom half of the tee around in it for a dipped effect. You can vary the amount of tee covered in paint.
3. Tap the pointy end against the paper plate a few time to get off any excess paint.
4. Dry the tees upside down on a paper plate. Just be careful not to knock any over or you'll have a domino effect (based on experience)!
I packaged mine up in a little baggie with a gift tag. (Sorry to completely ruin the surprise Dad - hope you don't end up reading this post until after Father's Day!)
These don't have to be just for Father's Day. They would make a great gift for any golf lover. In fact, I'll be saving a few of these for myself.
