Homemade Football Flatware Holder (Made From A Soup Can)

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?! Get ready for your perfect football party with this homemade football flatware holder -- made from a soup can! It's perfect for your Super Bowl party or your next tailgate.I keep telling Pete that when we have a house, we’re going to have themed parties. Every week, though, we’ll have football parties. That’s the definite plan. We have them ourselves now, but it would be fun to have people over to watch the game.

When we do, I’ll definitely be breaking out this homemade football flatware holder. For now, we’ll use it for our own game watching.

It was pretty easy to make, plus I only used items that I had at home. I love crafts where I have everything already. I will caution you to be careful. When I was washing the inside of the can, I slit my hand real bad on the edge. It happened so quickly — and painfully. It wasn’t anything a Band-Aid couldn’t fix, but next time, I would definitely stick this in the dishwasher instead. Just in case.

Peel the label off the can. Wash and dry it very carefully.

Measure the brown paper against the can. Make a small crease as a measurement line, using the edge of the can as a guide. That will help your paper to be slightly higher than the can itself.

Use the paper trimmer to cut the paper (a paper trimmer is amazing, by the way. It quickly and accurately cuts for you so you don’t get potentially wobbly lines like scissors give). You don’t have to trim it otherwise. That’s why the Progresso can is really great. It’s exactly the right size for this 11-inch sheet of paper.

Trim 1/8 of an inch of white paper.

Cut that strip in half, then cut the second half in quarters.

Glue the largest piece down the center of the brown paper.

Glue the four smaller pieces across the large white strip. Try to make them evenly spaced apart.

Add glue around the flat parts of the can. Again, be careful when you’re doing this. Use the middle as a place to hold, not the inside of the can.

Affix the paper to the can. Let it dry, then use it for your flatware.
