Are you hosting a super bowl party this year? You sports-loving animal, you.
If you’re throwing a super bowl party, you want it to the best.
You want to throw a touchdown of a party.
You want to host the party equivalent of a cheerleader pyramid when the top cheerleader dismounts by flipping around a dozen times and lands on her feet.
A party during which the halftime show will pale in comparison.
Okay, here’s how:
Custom Beer Coozies
Keep your brews cold and also team-spirited with handmade gingham beer coozies. Pick fabric in your team’s colors, and add jersey numbers if you’re feeling extra-crafty.
Team Jersey Coasters
This awesome tutorial comes from CraftyPod, and is the perfect way to showcase your favorite players. Quilters, rejoice. Or just cheer really loudly.
Football Field Tablecloth
Make this quick-and-easy football field tablecloth to a) protect your tabletop and b) impress your guests. You just need brown butcher paper and white paint or tape. I mean, do you see how awesome it is?
Make a custom chalkboard with a sheet of plywood or cardboard and some chalkboard paint, or use an existing one to keep track of stats, bets, or any other awesome wins for the day. Like all the best commercials.
Cheerleader Pom Poms
Make poms poms for your guests so they can truly express themselves. Extra points for high kicks and cartwheels. How big is your house again?
Tabletop Football Game
This craft does double duty. You can turn the artificial turf into an amazing tablecloth itself (seriously – you are bringing your A-game), and/or turn your table into a mini football field for quick games during commercial breaks with this handy tutorial from Lowes. And just in case you want to score some deals and touchdowns… http://verified.codes/Lowes.
Just because you’re not at the game doesn’t mean you can’t cover your face and body in your team colors. Or just eye black, if you’re feeling classy.
A Super Bowl Pool

You know you want to. Not sure how to set up a pool? This blog post walks you right through it.
Something for the Not-So Rabid Fan
There’s a good chance that someone’s significant other or child (or heck, you) aren’t all that into football. That’s totally fine, and one way to make the day fun for everyone is to have an alternate activity. A simple craft or a puzzle is the perfect way to hang out with everyone but not get bored stiff. We suggest downloading the Creativebug app or picking a class that will keep people entertained for the duration of the day. Maybe some bracelet braiding or embroidery?
How are you celebrating the super bowl?
