The director at our local thrift/recycle store asked me if I could figure out something to make out of old golf clubs.  I've made yard sculptures out of clay pots so she thought I could do something similar with the golf clubs, but I can't figure it out so far.

Any ideas would be very welcome.  Thanks so much.

How about making garden gates or trellises? You would just need to figure out how to weld or bolt them together...

Several years ago I went to an art fair & purchased this for my husband.  It is a loon made from a golf club.  



The woman I bought it from said she bought the old wooden clubs from garage sales. She turned them into a variety of ducks and waterfowl, all painted with authentic colorings on their heads.  Her husband carved the heads and she assembled and painted them.  I think I paid $40 US for it which seems like a lot, but not when you consider the amount of hand-work that went into it.  So if you have a lot of wooden ones...

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

So many projects. So little time.

Somewhere in my past I think I have seen golf clubs used as table legs.  You could get a wooden round at a home improvement store, drill holes in the bottom and insert the golf clubs which you had previously cut to the desired length.  Liquid nails would probably hold them in place.
