It’s big-game season for football fans, and every year I see the same Super Bowl crafts in my Pinterest feed. Decorations in grass green and pig-skin brown, lots of striped table-settings that mimic referees, even chips and dips served in displays that look like little appetizer football stadiums. Now, don’t get me wrong, any way you decorate/celebrate Super Bowl Sunday is the right way (especially if there are lots of finger-foods involved), but isn’t there a way to make it cuter? I think there has to be, so I’m taking it upon myself to create a Super Bowl spread with some style this year and I’m starting with the most important part: the things you put food in. I made these football DIY snack boxes that are easy to make and totally customizable to your favorite colors (or the colors of your team!), and they’re darn cute.
- Unfinished Wood Baskets
- Unfinished Wood Footballs
- Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Masking Tape
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Parchment Paper or Treat Bags
Step 5. Using more masking tape, tape off your first section that you’d like to paint with your first color. Apply two coats and let them dry completely. Then, remove the paint, tape a new section, and paint with your next color. Repeat until you have created the shapes in the colors you would like.
Step 6. Once the paint on your football has dried completely, you can peel off your tape stitches.
Now comes the best part: filling these DIY snack boxes up with the good stuff! Just line these cuties with wax paper, fill with all the snacks your heart desires, and Super Bowl in style with your snack box!
