I was asked to do another golf ball craft and it was requested that I do a turtle, so here it is! It looks like a baby turtle to me!

Baby Turtle Craft Directions
Draw an oval on a piece of paper. Cut out the oval and two triangles from the middle of the longer side. You can see an example in the video above.
Check the size, as compared to the golf ball, and adjust as necessary. Then trace onto the green craft foam.
Cut out the green craft foam, cutting on the inside of the pen marks.
Where you cut out the small triangles, now have them meet and glue them together. This is also demonstrated in the video above. This creates the shell.
Paint the golf ball, golf tees and wood dowel cap green. This might take more than one coat.
Take a thin paint brush and paint a border and the lines across the shell.
When dry, glue the shell onto the golf ball.
Once dry, drill a hole at one end for the head.
Glue the wood bead to the end of a golf tee.
Insert that golf tee into the hole drilled for the head. Add glue if needed.
Flip turtle over, so his belly is facing up. Drill four evenly spaced holes, for the legs. Insert the remaining golf tees.
**The golf tees at their original length will be too long. Cut them down to a length you like.
Glue on eyes and paint on the mouth – or draw on with a black permanent marker. Touch up any paint as needed and that’s it!
Now you have a super cute baby turtle!
Have fun with it! I’d LOVE to see what you make! Be sure to share it over on my Craft Klatch Facebook Group! It’s Free! ❤️
