AMAZING Golf Inspiration by Brenda Burfeind

Good day, Brenda here again from "Creativity is a State of Mind" and today I'm so eager to show you my June Inspiration that is something outside of my box. Actually it isn't that far outside, just a bit different than what I've been making lately. 

Recently I was asked what inspires me and I said "nothing in particular". That said, I started thinking more about that question and I guess it's my family. You see, most of what I make is usually for them or for me, LOL. Golf has recently (the last 3 years) become an addiction to my youngest son. If he's not at home you can usually find him on the golf course. It's great that it's basically in our backyard and he can go whenever he wants. For Christmas this past year we bought him a Junior Membership at the Club and now he spends every day there. I'm hoping he goes pro so I can retire and just enjoy watching him golf. 

Anywho...he has signed up for 12 tournaments this summer and we (he) have now completed 3. He took 4th place at the first one, didn't place the second one and got 2nd place the third tournament. I'm just thrilled that he's enjoying it so much and for each placement he receives a medal. So ... yes, I could have gone to the pro-shop and bought him a nice case to put his medals in, but with AMAZING Casting Products, I can do almost anything I want!

I started with molding an actual golf ball with Amazing Mold Putty, and only filling it half full with Amazing Casting Resin so I would get "half" golf balls. I drilled two holes, one on top of another with my dremel. The top hole was for the nail and then bottom hole for the cup hooks. Then I painted the pieces with white acrylic paint and nailed them to the board that actually was a piece of a drawer front that we got as a sample when we were looking at redoing our kitchen cabinets and put two hooks to hang it with (I recycle everthing). Then I painted the top of the nail again so you can't see it. I cut the words out of vinyl with my Cricut and now he has a place to hang his medals.

I really hope I've inspired you to try some Amazing Casting Products. There is simply no end to what you can create with it. Have I inspired you to create something?

  1. Nice! Had to look real hard to see that the golf balls are cast! I, too, up-cycle whatever I can. Saves me money on supplies and also at the dump! It is amazing what can be done with "trash" isn't it?
    Hubby thinks I am crazy but likes that it is saving money! LOL TFS!
