Grab your Duck Tape and mason jars y’all! These football-themed mason jar crafts are the perfect addition to any football party. Follow along as I show you how to make both of these football party mason jar crafts.
DIY Football Decor Ideas With Mason Jars
If you are planning a tailgating or other football game party, then you want some cheap decor ideas. I have 2 ideas for you and both of them use mason jars that you already have around your home.
The first idea is a plastic utensils holder. Decorate leftover glass jars from salsa or jelly with Duck Tape. When you see how easy it is, you’ll want to do this for every party!
The next idea is to create glass mason jar mugs that look like footballs. Don’t forget to add a cute straw with green flags!
The entire tutorial is at the end of this post in a printable craft card. First, I’m going to share some step-by-step pictures along with some tips.
How To Make Utensil Holders Out Of Mason Jars
The first football mason jar idea is to decorate empty jars to look like football jerseys.
To make the utensil holders you will need a sheet of green Duck Tape and a sheet of white Duck Tape. That’s all you need! Oh, and a Cricut cutting machine.
Yes, Duck Tape comes in sheets and it is great for crafts like these. If you can’t find a green, use your favorite color of Duck brand tape sheets.
Tips On How To Put Together The Mason Jars
Before you begin, measure the green Duck tape on the jars and mark how wide they need to be to fit over the mason jars. Then, cut them into equal pieces.
Use your Cricut to cut numbers from the white Duck sheet.
Use Leftover Jars
Wrap small jelly jars with the green Duck sheet then add the numbers to the front that you cut with your Cricut.
You don’t have to buy new mason jars for this craft. Just save and reuse jars from your fridge or pantry. In fact, you don’t even have to completely remove the labels since you are going to be covering the jars with the tape.
Add in your utensils and these mason jars are ready for your football party.
How To Make Football Themed Mason Jar Mugs
Next is the football mason jar mug. It uses the same supplies as the previous mason jars – the same Duck tape. Since these are going to be drinking mugs, it’s best to find some with handles, but it’s not required.
First, cut the parts shown below from the white Duck tape with your Cricut.
Add them to your mason jar mugs and fill them with beverages. You can also put green tape flags on fun straws to complete the look.
These are seriously some of the easiest party crafts you will ever make!
