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.

DIY Cork Football Coasters

I’m obsessed with our DIY Cork Football Coasters. They’re made from cork paper and paint.

These homemade coasters keep your coffee table protected while looking awesome. What’s not to love?

Homemade Football Flatware Holder

This Homemade Football Flatware Holder is cute way to display your forks, knives, and spoons on game day.

It’s made from an upcycled soup can, but works with an old vegetable can too. So if you’re opening a can of tomatoes to make queso dip for game day, rinse it out and turn it into a way to old your utensils.

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

The best part about this Football-Shaped Brownie, besides how amazing it looks, is that it’s made from a round cake pan. You don’t have to go out and buy a special football-shaped pan just for this recipe.

The other best part is it’s made from store-bought boxed brownie mix, so it’s really easy.

Chocolate-covered pretzels, decorated to look like footballs, in a container with the words "Chocolate Football Pretzel Rods" digitally written on top.

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.
