Last month my Sister got married to her High School Sweetheart and as her appointed MOH (Matron of Honor) I wanted to make sure she had all her bases covered with something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue. We took care of the first three with my pearl earrings, and a new pearl necklace she received as a gift but for the forth item I had something special in mind.
As some of you know our Grandmother whom we both loved so very much, passed away last January. I know my Sister would have loved for her to have been there on her Wedding Day and this little project of mine made it possible for her to provide that something blue and be there in spirit.
See, my Grandparents loved to golf and for as far back as I can remember I’ve always associated golfing with them. They’d travel together all over the world and they’d always bring their gold clubs with them. When my Grandmother passed away last year and we had to clean out the Estate we found bags and bag of ball markers. Even though I don’t golf I kept a few markers for sentimental reasons thinking that someday they would come in handy and I’d find a use for them.
As a surprise for my Sister on her Big Day I wanted to make one of the markers into a pin so that she could wear it as her something blue.
First I gathered together my supplies: cutters, sand paper, hot glue, markers and pins.
Next I snipped off the pointed part of the marker.
Then I sanded it down but left it a little rough so the glue could adhere to something.
Before you glue, wipe off the area you were sanding (preferably with alcohol) and them place a small dot of glue down.
Finally press the pin back in and let it dry and you’re done.
Simple, quick and easy ball marker pins.
Since I was at it, I even made a few extras for my other siblings and myself.
