It’s time for another recycling golf ball craft!  It’s been  while since my last one and today we are going to make a lion!!

You will need:
–  Golf ball:
–  Yellow paint:
–  Eyescrew:
–  Brown felt:
–  Black permanent marker:
–  Two googly eyes:
–  Glue – I used hot glue:
–  Drill or Dremel tool:

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Drill a hole into the golf ball and screw in the eyescrew.

2.  Put it on a wire, to hang it, to make it easier to paint.  Paint it yellow.  It will take 1-2 coats to cover the writing.  Allow to dry.

3.  Cut a circle out of the felt and cut an inner circle.  I show you how in the video above.  Don’t worry if it is not perfectly round.

4.  Glue it onto the golf ball, like a mane.

5.  Cut smaller pieces of felt and glue into place.  Now trim the mane to the shape you want.

6.  Cut fringes into the mane to give it a more realistic look  (I use the term realistic very loosely).

7.  With a permanent marker, draw the nose and mouth.

8.  Glue on googly eyes and eyebrow.

9.  Draw on whiskers if you want.

That’s it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
