Have you seen my DIY AstroTurf Yard Line Bunting Garland? Well, if you don’t want to make that, but still want to have fun with some AstroTurf, then I’ve got the same idea for you … but for DIY Super Bowl Football Field AstroTurf Coasters! They’re perfect for your Super Bowl party or Monday Night Football viewing. This is a quick and easy DIY to make before the Super Bowl if you’re having friends and family over to watch the game and want to protect your coffee table from ring spots. Or make these DIY football coasters to take as a hostess gift if you’re going to a party to watch the game! Plus, they’re super cute and functional! If you don’t have a lot of time to decorate, make something that both functions and is on theme! Ready to make some DIY Super Bowl Football Field AstroTurf Coasters? You’ll need just a few supplies including
- white spray paint
Recommended optional supply: felt for the bottoms to keep the bottom of the tiles from scratching your table. Instructions:
Step 1: Start by cutting out your Astroturf. Place your tile on the back of the Astroturf and cut around it, slightly larger. You should be able to cut along the gridded lines on the back to ensure it’s straight.
Step 2: Next, tape off your middle line and two miniature side lines. You don’t need to tape the entire coaster unless you want to. I’m a quick DIYer, so I take shortcuts and in this case, I used pages from an old catalog to protect the parts I didn’t want spray painted (which in this case are the right and left corners above the tape.)
Step 3: Remove the tape and allow to dry. Then take your stencils and place them in the correct areas, place your old catalog or magazine pages over the parts you don’t want spray painted, and spray paint the numbers. (Make sure the numbers don’t shift too much after you place them down, or you’ll end up with my 40 Yard Line coaster where the 4 is just a bit too high.)
Step 4: Once dry, follow the manufacturer’s instruction on the epoxy to glue the AstroTurf to your tiles and allow to dry a few hours.
Step 5: Optional, but recommended step: use epoxy or even a glue gun to attach felt to the underneath of the tiles so they won’t scratch your table. I would use white felt, so it matches the white tile.
Step 6: Set out your new coasters with your favorite sodas and some snacks.
And if you have any leftover AstroTurf, you can make DIY bottle and can cozies!
