EASY DIY Football Party Centerpiece! A Dollar Store Craft!


EASY DIY Football Party Centerpiece

I have been planning my “BIG GAME” Day festivities and since I will be having family over, I want to make it festive.  Of course I headed over to a Dollar Store (The Dollar Tree) to look for cute cheap items. While I was there, I found some football shaped plastic serving trays along with matching bowls.

One of my ideas was to also pick up items to decorate the table, however I did not see anything really intended for a centerpiece.  I then thought “Maybe I could make one”.

Looking around the store I found some foam footballs and then saw the sparkly balloon weights. I had the idea that they might look nice if there were put together. Not to mention the colors represent our favorite Dallas team.

Now keep in mind I wasn’t completely sure how I was going to do this, so my first try did not work. I thought I could just glue the ball to the balloon weight. Nope.

Second try was EASY.  All I did was angle the ball and poke a slit in the side of the foam (off-center) with utility scissors.  The slit was just big enough to fit the metal loop built into the weight. I then put a little glue on the metal loop and pushed this part into the Football.

After that, I arranged the sparkly stems coming out from the balloon weight. That was it, SUPER simple!!!
