giant poker golf balls out of hula hoops! Take standard sized
hula hoops and use them as a stencil to trace out the shape
of a golf ball. You might need to tape two sheets of white
banner paper together to get a sheet wide enough for the hoop.
Next, cut out the giant circles. Now, from standard white
paper and using a drinking glass for to trace with, create
dozens of white circles, cutting them out. Attach these to
the giant golf ball you made the effect is the look
of the golf ball dimples! For best results, be sure to use
partial circles on the edges of the ball to help with a 3D
look. If you have enough hula hoops, you can tape the golf
ball image to the hula hoop and lean them up against the walls
at different places for decorations. Otherwise, you can simply
tape giant golf ball images to the walls for the same effect!
Similar to the above idea, make large putting greens and sand
traps (from beige plastic table cloths found at most party
supply stores) for putting on the walls for decorations. Use
white ping pong balls to attach to each (balls on the greens
as well as balls stuck in the sand traps) to finish the look.
These are very inexpensive ways to decorate large areas of
space without spending a lot of money!
Visit your local library and check out several books on golf
ones with a lot of photos. These make great centerpieces
on your tables when propped up open. Its also nice to
have around for guests to pick them up and enjoy the pages
while they are mingling with the other guests.
Use poster board to make large scorecards for decorations.
Have fun by putting the names of different guests on the cards
(giving them either great scores or terrible ones
on the sense of humor of the guest.)
Visit your local dollar store and pick up some green, plastic
tablecloths. These are typically larger than most tables one
has and can be easily cut into the shape of a putting green.
These look great as table cloths (assuming the shape is smaller
than the surface of the table you are using).
