DIY Football Themed Koozies and Drink Markers

At the start of every new year, I look forward to the end of the NFL Football season.  Not because I’m tired of football…Are you kidding? Who could get tired of football???  (Jacque put your hand down!)  No, what I look forward to is the Super Bowl!  And of course, when I think Super Bowl, I think Super Bowl Parties!  The first event after the holidays to get your friends and family back together again!  So with that in mind, I thought I’d share a few quick and easy projects that you might want to try out at your next Super Bowl get together!  So without further ado, let’s take a look at how to make your own DIY Football Themed Koozies and Drink Markers!

We’ll start out with the Mason Jar Football Themed Koozies! Mason Jar Football Koozie

Here’ s a list of materials you’ll need:

  • Mason Jar
  • Green Indoor/Outdoor Carpet
  • Indoor/Outdoor Carpet Tape
  • Stencil (Optional)
  • Small Paint Brush
  • Valspar Paint Sample
  • Scissors

Using a pair of utility scissors, cut a strip of the indoor/outdoor carpet to 4″ inches  in width, then cut it to a length that will wrap around the outside of the mason jar.  DIY Football Koozie

Make a stencil that resembles a football field.  (I used a vinyl cutter to make this stencil.)  If you don’t have a vinyl cutter you easily could accomplish the same design by painting in the yards lines using a straight edge as a guide, then hand painting the yardage numbers in!  Football Party Ideas
