Are you a HUGE sports fan and like to go all out for game day? I'm not a huge sports fan but I do like parties so I've gathered up some fun ways to show your game day spirit, get your grub on, and cheer on your favorite team. Here are 5 great projects to help you get ready for the game:
I recently created this centerpiece and pennant set for the Tombow booth at CHA. Our theme was sports! You can use any colors to make these projects to show your team spirit.
Here are the supplies you'll need:
- Kunin Felt
- Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
You can decorate the pennant however you like. I suggest using puffy paint 0r iron-letters but you can also cut out letters by hand like I did here. I printed the letters on my computer and then pinned them to a piece of felt and cut them out. The key to a realistic looking pennant is to have the perfect base. Here's how to cut a perfect pennant from felt:
For the Centerpiece, you'll need these supplies:
- Smoothfoam Half Ball, 8″ diameter
- Tombow Mono Adhesive Runner
- Chalkboard Paint
- Chalk Marker
- Paint Brush
- Bamboo Skewer
- Football Die Cut
- Paper cut into pennant shapes
Here are the projects on display in the Tombow booth at the Craft & Hobby Association show earlier this month:
2. Pom Poms
Make your own pom poms with fabric, ribbons, and tulle! Mommy Savers shared how to make pom poms for the game with newspapers! Clever, clever.
3. Best Game Day Foods Ever
These Sweet Southern Style ribs are awesome game day food!

4. DIY Team Shirts
Use a screen printing machine or even a template and fabric paint to create fun festive shirts and “jerseys” to wear during the game without breaking the bank. This football onesie is for a baby but you can totally make adult shirts like this too!
5. Goal Can!
Collect money for a charity, your church, or some other cause every time your team scores! Create this goal can with Duck Tape to pass around as the team scores goals. You can pass the can and empty it at each game or collect all season long. We use this can for our AYSO soccer games to help fund the kids' end of season soccer party but you can use it for any game, from the big football game next weekend to your next high school baseball game.
I hope these easy ideas inspire you this game day! Pin this super awesome collage image to keep these ideas handy for your next shindig!
