Faux Grass Pen Holder with Father’s Day Tags

It’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day gifts. My kids love making and giving gifts to their dad that he can put on his desk at work. Since he loves golf the kids usually want to get him something golf related. I saw this faux grass at the craft store last week and had the perfect project in mind for Father’s Day. Why not make a Faux Grass Pen Holder? I’m pretty sure he is going to love it! Do you have a golf lover too?

Faux Grass Pen Holder

Here is what you need:

small crate (Target)
faux grass (Michael’s)
golf tee
golf ball
pen
pencil
paint (acrylic)
sponge brush
gift tag printables (print below)

Paint or stain the crate. Seriously the hardest part of this project is waiting for the paint to dry. I chose a very light blue to mimic the water hazards found on the golf course. We only painted on one coat so the wood would show through a little. I think it would look great with a dark stain too.

Put the grass in the crate, then place the golf tee between grass blades and place the golf ball on top. Add the pens and pencils to the grass. It holds them up really well.

Once you download and save the printable you can print it any size you like. Use these printables as gift tags, on scrapbook pages, or I have more ideas to share with you later this week.

To make them into a tag just punch a hole in the top and add baker’s twine.

Tie the tag onto the crate or another gift and write a message on the back.

I think this is going to look pretty awesome sitting on his desk at work and of course I love that it’s useful too.

    So cute! I saw something similar sold online and wanted one for my husband, but they were no longer available, so I was relieved to find your page because I can just make it myself now! Do you happen to know how much the grass costs?
