Materials Needed:

  • faux leather
  • empty cylindrical oats container
  • yarn
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • child size knit hat
  • child size polo shirt, Bermuda shorts (or dress slacks) and argyle socks

Embellish Hat

Create a pom-pom to top the hat by wrapping a long length of yarn around three fingers 20 to 30 times depending on the thickness of the yarn. Carefully slide the looped yarn off your fingers (Image 1) and knot it with a small piece of yarn. Cut the two looped ends to create a fluffy pom-pom (Image 2). Using a hot glue gun, attach the pom-pom to the top of a knit hat (Image 3).

Make a Golf Bag

Measure the oats container, then cut a piece of faux leather large enough to cover it. Using a hot glue gun, attach the material to the oats container, slightly overlapping the faux leather to create a seam. Cut a long strip for the golf bag's strap, attach it to the container's inner rim and bottom, along the seam.

Complete the Look

Dress your little duffer in traditional golf attire, then finish the look with the pom-pom topped knit hat and golf bag that can also be used to stash their candy haul.
