10+ Football Crafts & Recipes For Game Day

Get ready for game day with these Football Crafts for Game Day. There are utensil holders, football flag toothpicks and more. #FootballSeason

We host Football Sundays in our garage-turned-home theater every week. Or did, but had to stop #because2020. But, anyway … under usual circumstances, we set up some fun football décor (by way of these fun football crafts for game day) and project the game.

And this year, it seems like maybe we can do that again … for our small social pod, anyway.

One wall in our garage is completely blank and that’s where we project the games. So each player is basically life sized. We open the garage and all our neighbors come down to hang out.

We have a ton of snacks ready and chairs out, but some of our neighbors actually leave folding chairs in our garage all season long. If you don’t have a similar setup, but want to get in on the fun, these football crafts for adults are the way to go.

Heck, even if you do have a football-friendly garage, basement, or man cave in your house, you still might want to make a few crafts to go with the theme.

We’re here to help.

We put together a great list of 10+ Football Crafts For Game Day. You can find a DIY Game Day Banner, coasters, a party picks, and more. These tiny accents really add up to a great display for your football watch party. 

All you need to add is a big screen TV.

10+ Football Crafts For Game Day

Then, when the game is over, you can either save it for next Sunday or just toss it.

DIY Football Field Serving Tray - Charleston Crafted

DIY Football Field Serving Tray

Bring out all your snacks during halftime on this awesome DIY Football Field Serving Tray. It’s really easy to make and definitely something you’ll use all season long.

If you do make it, I would suggest only using it for wrapped or packaged snacks. I’m not sure how easy it would be to clean crumbs or grease out of AstroTurf.

DIY Football Cups

These easy DIY Football Cups are perfect for serving drinks or your favorite game day snacks. If you make a homemade snack mix for game day, like our Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheerios Chex Muddy Buddies, these cups are a great way to serve it.

What makes these so easy is that you can actually get a free printable for the laces in the post itself. So all you have to do is print them, cut them out, and stick them to your cups.

DIY Football Field Table Runner

Dress up your buffet table with this fantastic DIY Football Field Table Runner. It’s really easy to make and can be stored and reused every game day.

Just keep in mind that it’s best to let the paint on this table runner completely dry before setting it out, so you’ll want to make it at least one day before the first time you use it. Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours (or longer, if your paint is thicker) to assure it won’t ruin when you use this table runner.

DIY Turf Football Placemats

A little time goes a long way when you make these DIY Turf Football Placemats to impress your guests. And, if you have a little AstroTurf leftover from making the serving tray project from earlier, you can easily use those scraps to make these.

What fun and creative ideas! My faves are the coasters, beverage tub and yard game. We don't watch football here in Europe, we have the soccer culture here.
