What You'll Need
- Two wooden stakes
- Clear plastic tubing
- Copper couplers
- Spray paint
- Painter's tape
- Craft paint
- E6000 adhesive
Cut the clear plastic tubing into six pieces, each 20 inches long. You can cut them longer or shorter for bigger or smaller rings.
Fill a syringe with craft paint (a child's medicinal syringe works well). Slowly insert the paint into the clear tube. Use two different colors of paint, to signify two teams; three tubes should be one color and three another color.
Once the entire inside of the tube is covered with paint, drain out any excess. Allow to dry open for about 24 hours or until no more paint drips out. Apply some E6000 to the inside of a copper coupler, and insert the ends of a tube into the coupler to create a ring.
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until all of your rings are completed.
Use spray paint to cover both wood stakes with a solid coat of color.
Apply painter's tape in a few places on the stakes, being sure that the tape is in the same area on each stake. Smooth down the edges of the tape to ensure coverage.
Use various colors of spray paint to paint the uncovered areas of the wood.
Add any other painted embellishments that you might like, remove the tape, and allow to dry completely.
Insert the pointed ends of your stakes into the lawn and start playing!
