This Father's Day gift idea was simple enough for my toddler to help with and I think my husband's going to love it! All you need are golf tees, paint, a sandwich bag, and one of the printables below.
We used multi-colored tees (because my daughter was the one who picked them out) but white or plain wood would do just as well.
Decorate them with some acrylic paint. Paint lots and lots of them! (We have another ideafor them coming tomorrow!)
Let them dry. (I'd put them on a cooling rack, so they don't stick to the paper.)
You might want to spray them with a clear coat of something to seal them, but I didn't bother with that.
Put your tees into a standard size sandwich bag. Choose the printable Dad will like best (you can download it by clicking on the image.) Print it onto cardstock or heavy paper and cut it out.
Fold it in half and tuck the top of the bag into the fold. Put a staple on each side to keep it in place. Voila! A cheap, cute Father's Day present made with lots of love.
This would be really cute packaged with a special book to read together like Froggy's Day With Dad. For Father's Day, Froggy spends the day making his dad feels special. It begins with a breakfast of crunchy eggs and ends with a homemade present. In between they have lots of fun miniature golfing (or at least Froggy does!)

Painting A Golf Cart, Yourself? 3 Mistakes You Might Make (Plus Custom Paint Inspiration)
You’ve got a boring golf cart. You can barely tell it apart from all the other carts rolling through the course. The last time you were at the course, you accidentally climbed into another member’s cart, and it was a serious situation.
Ok, that’s a little far-fetched. The reality is that your cart has seen some miles, and now it’s dinged and nicked beyond recognition. The color dull and faded. You didn’t notice until a new member rolled by in a brand new cart and you could see the reflection of your future in the paint job.
Then, you know. It’s time to fix this. You think about taking it to a professional, but have you thought about doing it yourself?
Painting a golf cart isn’t easy, but you don’t have to take it to a professional. By keeping in mind a few mistakes newbie painters make, you can create a custom paint job that showcases your golf cart beautifully.
We’ve put together a list of the three most common mistakes newbie painters make and put together a list of custom paint jobs to inspire you once you’re sure how to paint a golf cart. Let’s take a look.
Mistake #1: Painting In the Open
You know you need to paint in a well-ventilated area because of the fumes. Your driveway or yard is the perfect place, right? The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and everything is perfect.
Is that a piece of grass stuck to your brand new paint application? Pollen, maybe? Unidentified outside debris?
It takes at least 24 hours for a proper paint application to dry on your golf cart. You don’t want outside debris ruining your paint job. You need to choose a place that’s well ventilated still protected. If you have a garage that you can leave open while painting, that’s perfect.
Be sure to lay down drop cloth or cardboard, so you don’t get paint on your floor.
Mistake #2: Skipping The Prep
Both plastic and fiberglass golf cart bodies need a lot of prep work if you want your paint job to look professional. Prepping might not be the fun part, but it’s essential.
To prep your golf cart correctly there are a few steps.
Check out few more bits of advice here.
The body of the cart is too smooth for the paint to apply correctly. You have to scuff it up. Use a fine grit sandpaper to sand away the smoothness gently using a circular motion. Sanding provides small groves in the finish that primer and paint can stick to better.
Once you’re finished, use a hose off the grit thoroughly.
Protect the Surface
Use masking or painting tape to protect areas that you don’t want to paint. If you have larger areas you don’t plan to paint, you can cover those with plastic bags sealed with the tape.
If you’re the kind of person who thinks you’ll be careful enough to skip the tape, think again. Inevitably, you’ll take so long painting that you’ll abandon the project altogether, or somewhere down the line, that paint will drip on a headlight.
If that fills you with dread, get your tape in order.
Find a paint primer specifically made for plastic surfaces. Cover the surface with even, thin strokes if you’re using a brush, or with even strokes of a spray. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for drying time.
If the coat looks too thin, cover it again in the same manner and wait for it to dry.
Mistake #3 Forgetting (Or Screwing Up) Clear Coating
You’ve done all the prep work. You’ve painted your cart, and it looks fantastic. Now, you’re finished and ready to rip that tape off and take your cart on the course.
Nope. You took all that time to prepare your cart to paint, but if you don’t seal it, that paint job won’t last. So sad.
Choose a sealant that’s compatible with the type of paint you’ve chosen. For example, if you’ve selected an acrylic paint made for plastic, choose a sealant specially formulated to work with acrylic.
Once you’ve finished painting, spray at least two coats of sealant on top, making sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions for drying times.
Sealant helps the paint retain its original gloss and prevents the colors from fading prematurely. It also helps prevent nicks and scratches. If you skip the clear coat, you’re leaving the paint vulnerable to damage and fading.
Once the sealant is dry, you can finally take the tape off and reveal your new cart.
Custom Painting Your Cart
You know the pitfalls of painting a golf cart on your own and now comes the fun part: deciding the style. You could go for a classic paint job, but where’s the fun in that. Here are a few golf cart paint ideas for custom painted golf carts to inspire you.
If your carts finish is a little worse for wear, you might not be able to bring back that squeaky-clean exterior.
One way to get around it is to use a camo pattern. It’ll trick the eye into overlooking the damage to the exterior because of the overlaying color patterns. There are a lot of different types of camo, but we’re going with the classic Army style. Here’s how to camo paint a golf cart.
- You’ll need four different colors for your camo. There are a few different versions, but we have tan, dark green, dark brown, and black.
- Once you’ve completed prepping the surface, paint the entire surface in the tan color. The tan is the lightest of the color series and forms the base layer of paint.
- Take a piece of cardboard and cut out a few different blobby shapes following the pattern found on the Army camo. Use these patterns to define various forms with the other colors.
- Starting with the next lightest color, hold one of the shapes up to your cart and spray around the edges, moving the stencil around to define the blob. When you’ve painted a few around the surface, begin again with the next color. Finish up with a few of the darkest color and then seal to finish.
Here’s a handy video to illustrate the method.
Classic Hot Rod Flames
If you’re a huge fan of classic cars, you can bring that same design to your golf cart. Some of those cars had complicated and intricate designs, but classic hot rod flames are a design you can do yourself.
Here’s how to do it:
- After you’ve prepped the surface, paint the entire cart in a bright primary color like yellow or red. You’re going for a bright color that provides high contrast.
- Use 3/4 tape to mark out the outline of the flames. In most classic cars, the flame pattern goes from grill to windshield. Here’s a video to illustrate.
- Use other high contrast colors to paint and outline the flames. If you chose yellow as your base color, you might have orange, red, and black for your flames. You may not have an airbrush tool, but here’s the basic idea.
- Seal the job properly.
Minimal racing stripes are a simple way to class up your golf cart without trying something complicated. This two-tone look is simple, requiring only proper taping. Choose your colors for maximum contrast. We suggest yellow and black, or black and silver. Here’s what to do.
After prepping the surface, paint it with your entire surface color.
Mark your stripes using the tape. In traditional racing stripes, there are two bold strips down the hood with thin lines just to the outside.
Use your contrast color to paint the stripes. Wait until it’s appropriately dry to peel the tape and seal the paint job. Here’s a classic racing stripe tutorial.
Painting a golf cart isn’t like slapping paint on your wall. The plastic pieces require an even hand, the right kind of paint, and a clear purpose. Even if you decide to repaint your golf cart in classic colors, following our advice will help you get the best result.
The best thing you can do is plan your approach from start to finish. Taking the time to draw out your design could be the difference between an ok job and a great job. Don’t make the mistakes some newbies make trying to custom paint their carts and you’ll be showing off on the course in no time.
If you decide to custom paint your golf cart, be sure to drop a photo in the comments below; we’d love to see what you’ve done.
Before you go throwing out any of your old golf clubs, just stop and have a think! Do your clubs really need replacing, or are they just looking worn out?
I have found in many cases that all my old clubs need is a quick paint job to get them looking like new again!
Painting your set of golf clubs is very affordable to do; usually costing less than $50 USD.
So before you think about replacing your clubs, first examine each club and then separate them in 2 piles.
- Clubs that are damaged or have decreased in performance.
- Clubs that are looking old, have scratches and scuff marks.
Any of your clubs that fall in group 2 can be restored to their original condition.
So please continue reading as I will outline all the steps that show you exactly how to paint your golf clubs and get them looking new again!
How to Paint Fill Golf Clubs
Some preparation is required before it’s time to paint your golf clubs. There are two vital aspects that need to be taken care of before any painting can begin:
- Roughing up: Unprepared metal is hard and has a nonporous surface which does not allow the paint to stick on to it. Consider roughing up the metal surface so that when painted, the paint stays on.
- Paint: Choose a paint that can withstand heavy impacts, abrasions, and friction. Golf club heads are meant to undergo a substantial amount of friction and hence choosing a normal paint would not serve the purpose.
Materials Needed To Remove Paint
The materials needed to remove the existing paint from the golf club are:
- Paint remover/Acetone.
- A small nail or anything with a sharp edge.
Materials Needed to Paint a Golf Club:
- Degreasing agent (water-based).
- Masking tape or painter’s tape.
- Heavy-duty canvas drop cloth.
- Etching primer.
- A spray can, in case the primer doesn’t already come in a spray can.
- Epoxy paint.
How to Remove Existing Paint from a Golf Club:
To remove the existing paint, follow the steps given below:
- Use a Q-tip to apply generous amounts of paint-remover to the areas of the golf club where you do not want any old paint. Acetone will work well. Wear latex gloves before using acetone.
- Let the golf club sit with the paint-remover on for at least two hours.
- Once it has soaked-in the paint remover, use a nail, or any object with a pointed edge to scrape the paint from the golf club and out of narrow or hard-to-reach areas, like letters and edges.
How to Remove Paint from Golf Clubs
- Apply generous amounts of paint-remover using Q-tip. Acetone will also do the job. Wear latex gloves before using acetone.
- Let the golf club sit with the paint-remover for a good length of time.
- Once the club has soaked in acetone, use a toothbrush dipped in acetone to scrub the paint off.
- Use pointed objects like nails or safety pins to get the paint out of narrow or hard-to-reach areas, like letters and edges.
How to Apply Paint Fill to Golf Clubs
- Prepare the golf club by liberally applying a water-based degreasing agent on it. Afterward, clean it well so that when the paint is applied, it sticks on properly.
- Keep the golf club in a position so that it gets completely dry.
- If there are areas that you would not want to be painted, use masking tape or painter’s tape to cover these areas.
- Place the club on a heavy-duty canvas drop cloth.
- Pour etching primer into a spray can if your primer does not come in one already. Spray a thin layer of the primer on your golf club’s head. Applying a thick layer of primer at one go will turn runny and deliver an improper finish.
- Keep the golf club aside for four hours to let the primer cure.
- Once it dries up completely, apply three thin coats of epoxy paint with brief intervals in between each spray. Just like in the fifth step, a thick coat might ruin the finish. To thin the paint, mix it with acetone.
- Allow two hours (or enough time to dry) between the application of each layer of paint.
Best Paint to Use on Golf Clubs
Though some suggest using acrylic paints on golf clubs, I would strongly recommend enamel paints and paints with epoxy mixed in them. Enamel paints offer faster drying times and stick on well, making them the best paint to use on golf clubs.
Acrylic paints, on the other hand, are not designed to endure the friction that the club is subjected to on the golf course.
How to Paint your Driver Head
How to Prepare your Driver Head before Applying Paint
- Use acetone or any paint remover to remove the existing paint from the driver head.
- Dedicate a good amount of time while using sandpaper on your driver head. Good preparation time will pay off in the long run.
- Apply a thin layer of etching primer. This will help the paint stick on to the driver head’s surface better.
- Let the driver head dry before you apply another thin coat of primer. Allow it to dry up completely.
- Paint with two or three-parts Polyurethane would be your best choice to paint your driver head.
- Apply three thin coats of paint with intervals in between each. The time allowed in between each application will allow the paint to cure completely. Applying thick coats will form lumps or turn the paint runny.
How to Paint Golf Club Shafts
Steps to Paint your Golf Club Shaft:
- Sand the steel shaft using sandpaper to prepare it before painting. This will enable the paint to stick on properly. To roughen up graphite shafts, remove the coating at the tip of the shaft. Then use the sandpaper to sand it.
- Roughening the shafts up also ensures that no dirt or dust is left behind in the part.
- Cover the other parts. The club head and the golf club grip may be covered with painter’s tape so that paint does not get on them.
- Place the shaft on a piece of newspaper or a drop cloth that is lengthier and wider than the shaft.
- Use a thin coat of a latex-based primer on the shaft. Using too much primer will lead to chipping issues later.
- Set the shaft aside for the primer to dry.
- Pick a color of paint of your choice and apply thin coats on to the shaft. Turn the shaft over to cover the whole part with paint. Do not spray thick coats of paint as it may leave lumps on the shaft.
- Now place two blocks of wood, one each beneath the grip and the club head. This will allow the shaft to dry properly without touching the surface of the newspaper or drop cloth. The curing time can extend up to 48 hours before you use the club again.
How to Paint Fill a Putter
The following materials will be needed to paint your putter:
- Metal bowl
- Latex gloves
- Metal pick
- Dish wash soap
Preparation for Painting a Putter
- Take a metal bowl and pour acetone into it. Wear gloves made of latex as a precaution before you transfer the acetone.
- Place your putter in the metal bowl filled with acetone. Make sure all parts of the putter that you want to be painted are submerged well in the acetone.
- Let the existing paint on the putter soak up the acetone. Allow it to sit for a good length of time.
- After some time, scrape with a metal pick on the surface of the putter to see if the paint comes off. If it doesn’t, let the putter soak up acetone for some more time.
- Once you’re able to scrape paint off the putter using the metal pick, remove all the paint on it.
- To remove paint from hard-to-reach areas, use Q-tips.
- To ensure that your putter is free of paint, grease, and debris, use a toothbrush dipped in dish washing soap and make sure you clean it.
- Let the putter dry completely.
- Once it’s completely dry, use a toothpick to apply paint on the putter. Dip the toothpick in the paint of your choice and apply it on the putter.
- Applying a thick layer of paint can form bubbles or lumps. Make sure to keep the surface devoid of bubbles by using your toothpick to break or push bubbles to an area outside of the painting job. Clean the bubbles once the paint is completely dry.
- To clean up the paint, let the newly painted putter sit for a while to cure. Then dip your Q-tip in acetone and brush it gently on the areas where the paint is to be cleaned.
How to Paint Fill Golf Irons
- Mask other areas of the golf club using painter’s tape.
- Use Acetone or paint remover to remove the paint from your golf iron. Wear latex gloves before you use acetone.
- Let the golf iron dry up completely.
- Use a pointed object like a needle or a safety pin to clean out inaccessible areas in the golf iron.
Steps to Paint your Golf Iron:
- Use acrylic spray paint with the color of your choice to paint the iron.
- Use a damp paper towel to remove the excess paint.
- Let the paint dry up.
- Use two to three coats with enough intervals between each coat for the previous layer to dry.
How to Paint Fill Wedges
- Remove the existing paint from the wedges by soaking it in a bowl filled with acetone for a few minutes.
- Dip a toothbrush in acetone and scrape the paint off the wedges.
- Let the wedges to dry.
- Dip a toothpick in enamel paint and paint fill your wedges.
- To remove any excess paint, use a razor blade. You can also use a lint-free piece of cloth dipped in nail polish remover to remove the excess paint.
- Use a Q-tip dipped in acetone to even out the smudges.
How to Paint Golf Club Grooves
- Rinse thoroughly to clean any grit, dirt, dust, or debris that might be stuck to the grooves of your golf club and let it dry completely.
- Use enamel paint in a spray can to paint your grooves.
- After a thin layer of paint, allow it to dry well before you apply a second layer.
- Once you’re satisfied with the number of layers of paint, allow the grooves to dry completely.
- Once it’s completely dry, spray clear-coat on the paint and let it dry again.

Kids Golf Ball Painting Craft | Fall Kids Craft
**These posts often contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for details.**
An easy, mess free kids golf ball painting using a cake pan and lid! A great fall kids craft idea that makes a sweet Thanksgiving card for grandparents!
PIN THIS CRAFT FOR LATER!
Kids are inherently messy.
They make a mess when they eat, as they play, and most certainly any time they do a craft project. That’s part of being a kid, yes. But as a Type A mama myself, I appreciate crafts that try to keep the mess to a minimum.
That’s often hard to do while still allowing the child space to have fun and really dive into the project.
This craft, golf ball painting, is a great mess free paint project that is perfect for kids! Moms will love it too!
How to Make a Mess Free Kids Golf Ball Painting for Fall
Cake pan with a lid
2+ Golf Balls
Book pages or colored paper
Step 1. Tape paper to inside of cake pan.
Using a type of tape that won’t tear or ruin your paper, secure your paper to the inside bottom of the cake pan.
I used a very small piece of masking tape on each end of the pan, and didn’t press the paper into the tape too much. Washi tape would also work for this because it typically doesn’t ruin paper when it’s peeled off.
Step 2. Put small dabs of paint onto the paper.
I wanted to make a golf ball painting using fall colors, so I chose red, orange, yellow and brown for my paint colors.
We’ve done this before with spring pastels as well. Choose colors based on the season or theme you want your painting to be!
Step 3. Put two (or more) clean golf balls into the pan.
Make sure they’re clean so they won’t leave any dirt or grass residue on your painting.
Step 4. Put the lid on the cake pan and roll the balls around inside!
This is a great kids craft or even a baby craft because it’s pretty fool-proof and mess-free. The lid keeps all the paint inside, and kids have fun shaking and tipping the cake pan, to roll the golf balls around inside.
As they roll around over the paper, they will smear the dollops of paint around, creating a neat marbled effect.
Keep going until you start to see the marble paint design covering the whole paper inside.

Step 5. Remove paper and let dry completely.
Carefully take the lid off of the pan and remove the golf balls.
Peel the paper off of the bottom of the pan, using caution not to rip it where the tape is.
The paint needs to completely dry now, and depending on how thick it is in some parts, it might take a while.
After your artwork is starting to dry, you can lay another piece of scrap paper carefully over the top, and lay a heavy box or book on them to flatten out your golf ball art. As the wet paint dries on the paper, it has a tendency to crinkle and curl, but pressing it flat when it’s almost dry helps you get it extra flat and ready for crafts.
Step 6. Trace your child’s hand print, and cut them out of the painted paper.
I decided to do a simple traced hand print shape because I wanted to use these as gifts for Raleigh’s grandparents. Grandparents always love hand print crafts! You could also cut the artwork into hearts or any shape you want.
I traced Raleigh’s hand on a scrap piece of paper (not pictured), cut it out, and used that as a template for tracing and cutting out hand shapes from his golf ball paper (photo below).
Step 7. Make a card using old book pages and colored paper.
I cut rectangles out of old book pages that were large enough to fit the handprints, and then glued a hand print to one side.
I also cut a smaller rectangle of tan-colored paper and glued that to other side of the book page as a place to write a message.
Step 8. Write a message on the card!
These cards are to tell Raleigh’s grandparents how much he loves them!
If he were old enough to write his own message, I would have him do that. Instead, I wrote a little message on the back of each card for him.
PIN THIS CRAFT FOR LATER!
Step 9. Deliver it!
Whether you put the golf ball painted card into an envelope of matching size and mail it, or deliver it by hand, it will be a hit!
After all, grandparents love everything from their grandkids, right? 🙂
– – – – –
Golf ball painting is the perfect mess-free paint craft for young kids.
The painting itself is a masterpiece; pretty enough to hang on the refrigerator or put into a frame.
The marble painting can also be used in a variety of different crafts like this fall hand print craft. Depending on the season, you can also customize the colors to fit the season or holiday, and create a variety of different crafts!
The sky is the limit!

I almost bought that bottom one Doug. It was on craigslist, but I really wanted a club car (no offense to EZ-go). I have seen those others when I googled john deere golf cart.
These are all cool, but they are really similar and all have the same solid green bodies. I had though about doing a green body and making the yellow look like you threw it at the front going down the road. But, that was going to be way too time consuming to get it right.

Fall Art Activity for Toddlers – Painting with Golf Balls
Here’s a really fun fall art activity that will get toddlers and preschoolers moving and shaking while they explore the colours of Fall. Golf balls, paint and a cardboard box are all you’ll need for this easy activity.
We’re doing lots of fall crafts here in my daycare these days, and the kids have really enjoyed some of the fall art projects we’ve done.
We’re trying a really fun art process that I’ve seen all over the we lately – painting with GOLF BALLS!
To be honest, when I’ve seen this activity online, people usually use marbles and paint, but we don’t have any marbles, so we’re improvising with golf balls.
This was one of the funnest art activities the toddlers and preschoolers have done this year. I love that it’s easy enough for even the youngest children to have complete control over.
Before the kids got started on this easy art project, we talked about Fall in general. We discussed how Fall can also be referred to as Autumn, how the weather turns cooler, how the leaves fall of the trees, and how those leaves turn colour. Then we looked at the trees around us, and noted what colours of leaves we could see. The children identified the colours red, orange, yellow and brown.
I asked them if they’d like to create some fall art in those colours, and of course they were excited. They jumped up and down, saying “Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!”. Don’t you love how excited little kids get about the simplest things?
To do this Fall Art Activity, you’ll need:
- Cardboard box
- white paper or card stock
- golf balls
Painting with golf balls:
We put a piece of white cardboard (you can use any kind of paper, or card-stock. We just happen to have a lot of white cardboard) into the bottom of a cardboard box. Then we dribbled Tempra Paint onto the white cardboard (this was the only part of the activity that I participated in, simply because I wanted to control the amount of paint that went into the box – you don’t need a lot.
The Hooligans tossed the golf balls in, and then they tipped, tilted, jiggled and shook the box, and let the golf balls do their thing.
They jumped and bounced and danced around, shaking the box back and forth and up and down, watching the golf balls make tracks through the paint.
They found it so exciting to watch their white paper transform into a colourful piece of art.
I loved that they were all so supportive and encouraging of whoever was shaking the box.
They cheered each other on, saying “Good job”, “That’s the way!”, and “You’re doing it!” to each other.
The results were truly beautiful!
What was really neat, was because the centre of the golf ball is making the tracks, our paintings naturally had an unpainted white border all around the edges.
If your toddlers and preschoolers haven’t tried painting with golf balls, you have to give this art activity a try! It’s so, and the kids will have a blast.
I think these pieces will look lovely displayed in our play room.
