With the Big Game less than two weeks away, it’s time to start planning your Game Day Party! Here are some DIY Game Day Ideas for party decor, and some fun stuff for football fans to make and wear!
Football Field Table Runner
Supplies: 2 pieces of green Stiffened Felt Sheets by Darice (12 in x 18 in x 1.5 mm each), 1 sheet of white Duck Tape, white number stickers (we used American Crafts Thickers in Subway), a yard stick, a ruler and scissors. If you happen to have a paper cutter, it will make this project even easier. All supplies from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond.
Step 1: Cut strips out of the Duck Tape Sheet. You’ll need nine strips that are 1 inch in width and 8 inches in length.
Step 2: Flip the felt sheets over and use a piece of Duck tape to attach the two pieces of felt on the back.
Step 3: Using a yard stick for guidance, centering the Duck Tape strips, stick the strips four inches apart from each other.
Step 4: Use number stickers to make the “yards.”
The Big Game Roman Numerals
It’s the 48th Super Bowl… that means XLVIII in Roman Numerals.
Supplies: Large wooden letters (XLVIII), gold acrylic paint (we used gold Art-Alternatives paint) and a paintbrush. All supplies from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond.
All you have to do is paint the letters gold and you have a fun centerpiece for you Big Game Tablescape!
Football Cupcake Picks
Supplies: Football stickers (we used Darice Stickerz) and small craft sticks. Our crafts sticks are from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame in Redmond and come in packs of 50. All supplies from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond.
This is the easiest project ever! Stick attach the stickers to the craft sticks and put them in the cupcakes!
Football Fan Glasses
Supplies: Mason Jars (we used blue because we live on “Seahawk Country” but regular Mason Jars are great too), Transform Mason Daisy Lid inserts, vinyl letters. All supplies from Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond.
Remove the glass lid insert and replace with a Daisy Lid insert. Use vinyl letters to give props to your favorite football player or show team spirit. Here in Seattle it’s all about the “12th Man” so we used the number 12. Add a fun straw to show off you team colors.
Fan Hair Elastics
Supplies: Official NFL Seahawks ribbon, Peel & Stick Fabric Fuse, Craft Cover Button Kit, elastic and scissors. Find all this stuff at Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames in Redmond.
