Golf Ball Flowers for Father's Day

By: Dana Frieling for Make Them Wonder

Whether you're crafting for your dad, husband, brother, uncle, or friend, this set of Golf Ball Flowers for Father's Day is sure to be a knockout!  Guys will love that you took the time to make this clever gift and they're sure to enjoy some time on the golf course.  Present them in a jar filled with acorns, nuts, stones, or even golf tees!  No matter how you slice it, this is one gift that's sure to be a hole in one.

Golf Flowers


  • Plastic cups
  • Skinny dowel rods
  • Green floral tape
  • Red and green tissue paper
  • Vase
  • Vase filler (I used nuts and moss, but marbles look great too)
  • Ribbon
  • Lighter
  • Saw
  • Golf balls



  1. Use the lighter to melt the bottom of the cup. This only takes a few seconds. When you notice the plastic beginning to change form, push the dowel into the bottom of the cup and slightly twist the dowel. You'll see the plastic wrap around the rod. As it cools, the dowel is now enclosed by the plastic. This is what provides stability. Repeat this step until you have the desired amount of "flowers."

  2. Use the saw to make your "stems" varying lengths.

  3. Fill the vase with filler and begin to "arrange" your flowers.

  4. Wrap each dowel with floral tape.

  5. Here's a close-up of the bottoms of the cups. If some are burned, no worries, they'll be covered soon.

  6. Now, unwrap a single sheet of red tissue paper. Softly poke the end of the dowel through the center of the sheet.

  7. Carefully, work the paper up the dowel to the bottom of the cup.

  8. Now fold the tissue around the cup and begin to push the excess into the center of the cup.

  9. The excess provides a cushion for the golf ball.

  10. Repeat this process until all "flowers" have bloomed!
  11. Use the green tissue papers to fill in the dead space and create the look of floral greenery.

  12. All that's left is to carefully place a golf ball inside of each flower and you're done!

These are very cute. You could even make cake pops (without the stick) & place them in each cup.

I really think this is a great idea. I like that you could do this with other round items that before would of been hard to think of how to used them without hurting them. Ping pong balls or make up items. Really great. Thanks.
