Golfer's Frame and Mat

What better way to present your favorite golfing photo than with this colorful frame? A great way to use leftover tees and an unattractive frame, this project is inexpensive and easy to make. We chose colors that went with our tees, but you can use other colors if desired. Plain card stock can be used if you cannot find the golf ball paper; we found it in the scrapbooking section of our local craft store.

Wooden or plastic frame

Black acrylic paint

Paint brush

Pencil

Golf ball printed paper

Scissors

Photo

Tacky glue or hot glue gun

Golf tees

Half of a Golf Sports Ball

Cover your work surface with newspaper. Remove the glass and backing from the frame and set aside. Paint the frame black. Let the paint dry as directed by the manufacturer, and then apply a second coat. While the paint is drying, trace the shape and size of the glass from the frame onto the reverse side of the golf ball paper to determine the size of the mat. Cut the golf ball paper along the lines. Center the photo on the golf ball paper and then glue it to the paper. Let the glue dry before handling. Using the glue, glue the tees and Golf Sports Ball to the frame. Make sure none of the items will cover over the photo and, if you plan on having the frame sit on a surface rather than hang, make sure none of the items hangs down too far on the bottom or else your photo will be crooked. Let the glue dry thoroughly. Reassemble the glass, matted photo, and frame.
