My boys love to have football parties any time of year at my house, and especially during football season. I saw these small brown metal buckets at Oriental Trading, and knew it would be easy to make them look like little football buckets. We filled the football party pails with our favorite homemade sweet and salty snack mix to serve at our big game party.
Want to make this football craft for your football game day party? Here’s how it’s done.
- Add white football laces to each pail by cutting a 3-inch long strip of white tape or vinyl. Cut the strip to be about 1/4 of an inch wide. Stick the strip at a 45-degree angle on the front side of the pail.
- Cut three more strips of white tape or vinyl. Each strip should be about 1-inch long and about 1/4 of an inch wide. Stick the shorter strips to the pail along the first strip (as shown in photos.) Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each pail.
If you are planning a football party, you can find all the party supplies and decorations you need at Oriental Trading. My go-to football party supplies are their football theme plates, cups and table decorations.
I also got the cutest football shaped paper lanterns to hang. The lanterns come in a set of three, and can be used over and over again. For just a few dollars, they are a great investment if you are like me and know you will have more football parties in the future! My kids are loving the Football Toss Game. It’s perfect for half-time entertainment.
