How to Make Cute Farmyard Animals Directions

Step 1: Start Painting Your Soon To Be Cute FarmYard Animals

Paint your golf balls. One yellow and the other pink. This will take at least two coats. I like to use caps from water bottles to set them on, so they don’t roll around. Allow them to dry.

Step 2: Keep Painting

Paint two pistachio shells yellow, two pinks, and one orange. Also, paint the two “I”‘s pink and the “Y” orange.

Step 3: Glue

Glue the pink golf ball on the pink “I”‘s. Glue the yellow golf ball on the orange “Y”.

Step 4: Time For Pistachio Shells

Glue the yellow pistachio shells on either side of the yellow golf ball. This will be the wings. Glue the orange pistachio shell on for the beak.

Step 5: Cute Farmyard Animals Are Taking Shape

Glue the pink button onto the front of the pig, making sure you have the buttonholes positioned to be nostrils.

Step 6: It’s All In The Eyes

Glue the goggly eyes in place.

Step 7: Tough Nut

Cut the pink pistachios in half. I used a rotary tool. You might be able to do it with a craft knife, but it’ll take some work and you will probably have a dull blade at the end. You could substitute these shells with paper.

Glue the half pistachios on the top of the pink golf ball for ears.

Step 8: Shake Those Tail Feathers

Glue the yellow feathers onto the yellow golf ball. One or two for the tail and the other one on top of the head.

Step 9: Piggy Wiggy Curly Tail

Drill a hole into the back of the pink golf ball (you can just glue this in place if you would like to skip this step).  Cut the wire and glue it into the hole. Take a toothpick and wind the wire around it, which now gives you a curly tail.

Step 10: A Little Touch Up

Touch up as needed. Paint the tail pink.

  1. I would like to do these golf balls as a craft for about 50 gals. Where can I find the small wooden letters? Everything I have seen to order gives you the whole alphabet when I only need the I and Y.

  2. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask! trackman golf simulator
