I’m a huge hockey fan, but so many of my friends are football fans. Whenever I ask my friends if they’re free to do something on Sunday, the answer is “No, gotta watch the game!” So I decided if I want to see them, I’ll have to join them. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a Football Party plan, but today I’m sharing how to make some football yard line bunting using astroturf.
These are super easy to make, add a ton of festivity to your party, AND you can use it again when Superbowl Sunday rolls around in February! You’re going to need a few supplies: astroturf, scissors, stencils, white paint, hole punch, and twine. You can purchase astroturf at most home improvement stores for about $10-15 for 5-6 feet which is plenty of astroturf and you can use the leftover to make coasters, drink cozies, and a table runner.
- First, you need to cut the astroturf into large triangles using your ruler, marker, and scissors. Mine were 7″ across at the top and 10″ long down each side.
- Next, use your stencils, spray paint, and some old paper (I used magazines and catalogs) to paint white stripes and numbers onto the triangles.
- Then punch holes into the upper corners of your triangles using a hole punch or your drill gun and thread some twine through them.
Finally, break out some chips and dip and enjoy a relaxing Sunday and the football game!
