Even though our favorite team was eliminated this past weekend, I still can’t wait for the Big Game! I love the excitement, the commercials, and definitely the snacks! It’s a great reason to invite friends and family over.
Getting ready for a football party is always fun. I love putting the snacks together and adding some festive decorations.
When it comes to food, I like to make sure there’s something for everyone. I like to buy a variety of snacks from pretzels to popcorn and more. Our favorites are Pop Secret® Popcorn, Snyder’s of Hanover® Pretzels, and my husband’s personal fave — Cape Cod® Potato Chips. I found all of these at my Walmart this past weekend.
I just lay out a spread of easy to eat snacks right where everyone can get to them in my cute football-themed platters and bowls.
When it comes to the decorations, I love to add some easy DIY football-themed decor. This football wreath is the perfect thing to put on the front door so everyone knows where the party is! Here’s how to make it:
DIY Football Wreath
- 10-12 inch styrofoam wreath
- 2 skeins eyelash or fur green yarn
- white electrical tape
- mini footballs
- glue gun
- 3-ft length of coordinating ribbon or tulle
First wrap the eyelash yarn once around the wreath and knot it.
Now begin wrapping the wreath with the eyelash yarn. I like to wrap it around about 5-6 times and then push it over together.
Continue doing this until the entire wreath is covered.
Next, position the wreath so you have it turned the way you want it. Locate the 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock positions on the wreath.
Cut and wrap a 7-8 inch piece of electrical tape around each of the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock sections of the wreath for the yard markings. The 12 o’clock position will be left open for the ribbon or tulle for hanging.
Cut 6 of the same length pieces as before, for hash marks. Then, cut these in half lengthwise to make 12 pieces. They end up looking are skinnier than the main yard markings.
Wrap 3 of the skinny pieces of tape as hash marks between each of the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions for a total of 12. Wrap these around the wreath just like you did for the yard markings.
Cut a 3-foot length of ribbon or tulle and tie it around the very top of the wreath at the 12 o’clock position for hanging. I used white tulle.
Decide on the placement of your mini footballs. I chose an odd number of 5 to look best on my wreath. Then, hot glue each one securely in place.
Now your DIY football wreath is done and ready to be hung on the front door so your guests know where to find the football-watching party!
