It’s time for football!!!!
I’m so excited. I love football. I love playing a pick up game in the back yard, watching the kids play at school, watching our favorite college teams, our favorite professional teams, the football parties, tailgating….the football food! Seriously, I love everything about it.
Speaking of Friday night lights….I have the perfect DIY football project for you to make for your next football party, tailgating event or just to make and take to the game! You can never be too decked out on the sidelines cheering!
These DIY football Mason Jar cups are so adorable and so insanely simple to make. Just 5 minutes and you are on your way! The possibilities are pretty endless with this way of decorating, but I like to try to make a few different designs to help people keep their drinks seperate a bit. The best part? After your party, you just pull your design off and your jars are ready to decorate for your next event! And did I mention, this show stopping party idea won’t break the bank? You can make them for about $1 each (including the jar!) Already have the jar? Your total cost is about 30¢. TOUCHDOWN!
You will need:
- Mason Jars (I use the pint size. Bonus: This is the perfect size to hold a 12 oz POWERADE!)
- Balloons in your desired colors. I used green, black and a pearl gold. (NOTE: Brown balloons can be trick to find. The ones I found were SUPER dark only lighting up in color once they are filled up. Since I wasn’t filling them up I went with the gold color and I think it looks great!)
- White electrical tape (I got mine at Walmart in the tools/auto area.)
First, I give my balloons a little stretch. Honstly, I’m not sure it does anything, but I do it anyways! ;) Then you make two cuts as shown above and below.
You really just want the round section of the balloon.
Then s-t-r-e-t-c-h your balloon around the bottom of your Mason Jar. It won’t be straight across anywhere, they are kind of a fun whimsy look. It looks almost like you dipped the jar in a bucket of paint.
Then use your electrical tape to add a design. I stick to pretty basic designs that are easy to make with straight lines.
These honestly take just a minute to make and anyone can do it! I think for our end of the season party I may just do all referee cups and order little whistles to hang on them! (Well, I’m still debating if the whistles are a good idea for a whole football team of boys to be running around with! It might get a little noisy! LOL)
POWERADE is definitely the drink of choice. I was so excited when I saw that Walmart had 12 packs of 12 oz bottles because they fit perfectly in the cups! Do you know what else does? Cans of Coca-Cola! So while you are shopping be sure to stock up on Coke Zero and Coca-Cola as well as POWERADE!
You can find everything that you need to make these fun football cups and to fill them at Walmart! Walmart has everything that busy game moms need!
