With the summer holidays just around the corner, we are sharing a fun and easy craft that is perfect for a patriotic holiday table centerpiece or holiday decorating.  Read on to find out more to make your own  Patriotic Flag Painted Golf Balls.


My husband loves to play golf.  Not nearly as much as he would like to given the amount of hobbies he enjoys, but enough that he brings home a lot of used golf balls.   He uses them for practice from time to time, but the used golf balls do start piling up fast once the weather turns warmer.  I decided to use a few for this quick & easy, and oh so cute project.

We lost our images sorry. If you make this, please email us your pictures.

Supplies used:
Used Golf Balls
Dark Blue Spray Paint
White Spray Paint
Star Stickers
Red Craft Paint
Paint Brush

Mr. Hobby recently brought home yet another box of used golf balls to add to the ever-growing collection.  You can see in the picture, they get dirty and scuffed up after use.   So the first thing I did was quickly wash them to get as much of the dirt and mud off of them as I could.

Using a sheet of star stickers, I randomly stuck stars on several of the golf balls being careful not to stick a star over any existing wording printed on the balls.

I grabbed an old egg carton to set the golf balls on while spray painting them with a dark blue.

After they dried, I turned them and spray painted the other end.

I spray painted the remaining golf balls with white to cover any printed wording on the balls. I didn’t have another egg carton available, so I used what I could find.


After the paint dried for a few hours, I pulled the star stickers off the blue balls, and I painted red stripes on the white balls using red craft paint.

I layered the balls in a basket for display.  Done.   So easy and so cute!

Thank you for your visit today!
