#2 Football “Turf” Placemats – Check out Sugar & Cloth for the details on creating some amazing DIY football turf placemats. This crafty project is easy and fun! Just pick up some Astro Turf and white craft paint to create placemats or coasters that look like a slice of the field!

#3 Game Day Drink Tub – Shoutout to Evite for this amazing tailgate themed party idea! Take your drink tub to the next level by building a goal post with PVC pipe. Spray paint the posts yellow and wrap the tub in the leftover Astro Turf you have from our second football themed party idea on the list!

#4 Backdrop With a Plan – Kudos to Pink Peppermint Design for this fun idea! Place a large chalkboard behind your spread of food for a backdrop straight out of an expert tailgate host’s playbook! Next, take a thick piece of chalk and draw out a simple football play. (Check out the blog for an easy-to-follow example). If you don’t have a chalkboard, just pick up a foam board at your local craft store and use a thick white pen to draw out the play. You got this one, coach!

#5 DIY Eating Utensil Holders – Save some empty cans, remove the labels, and paint them brown. Next, take some white paint or a thick white marker and draw the “laces” across the “football.” Bam! You’ve got the perfect contains for holding forks, spoons, and knives in your buffet line!

#6 Edible Football Field – If you love cake decorating, you’re going to love this. Check out Party City’s edible football field appetizer for a fun homemade project! You’ll need a large serving dish. Fill one “endzone” with salsa and the other with nacho cheese dip. Fill out the “field” portion of the dish with guacamole. Put a little sour cream into a squeezing tube to create the “yard lines.” Finish off your edible football field with some cherry tomatoes (the “players”).
