Grab your vinyl or even Duck Tape and make these football mason jar ideas for any party you are planning! 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 in minutes. They really are that easy!
DIY Football Themed Mason Jars
If you are planning a tailgating or other football game party, you may want some cheap decorating 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 on a printable craft card. First, I’m going to share some step-by-step pictures along with some tips. I also have a Cricut cut file for you so you can make these jars in minutes by cutting the pieces on any Cricut machine.
Football Cricut SVG File
First, download the cut file by signing up for the newsletter in the box below. Look for a box with a picture of the download you want to receive. If you already get the newsletter, just add in your information again as you will not be signed up for anything further. Once you are signed up, check your email for your file. You can then upload to your Cricut machine in order to cut the pieces for your football crafts.
Please note that this file is for personal use only. You can also contact me if you have any issues getting the file.
How To Make Utensil Holders Out Of Mason Jars
The first football mason jar idea is to decorate empty jars to look like a football field complete with the number markers. You could also do these in team colors to look like football jerseys as well.
- sheet of green Duck Tape or vinyl (depending on which you can find available)
- sheet of white Duck Tape or vinyl (depending on which you can find available)
- Cricut cutting machine
- Cricut cut file (download above)
- small jelly jars or any other leftover or recycled jar
Cutting Your Pieces
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. You can use green vinyl for this step or even paper.
Use your Cricut to cut numbers from the white Duck sheet. Remember you can use vinyl here if you can’t find the Duck tape. Be sure to download the cut file above for the numbers and resize it once you upload it to Design Space to fit your jars.
Adding to Mason 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 tape. Add in your utensils and these mason jars are ready for your football party.
Football Mason Jar Ideas: How to Make 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. However, if you want to add the straws to this one, you will need some themed paper straws.
First, cut the parts shown below from the white Duck tape with your Cricut. The same cut file above has the parts for both of these football mason jar crafts.
Add them to the front of 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!
To make the flag straws, just wrap Duck tape or vinyl around your straw and cut with scissors into a flag shape. It is so easy but really adds something special to these football mason jar ideas.
Your guests will love these football-themed mason jars at your party. From serving the drinks to setting the table, you can have a mason jar ready for the occasion. Be sure to pair these with our football party printables for the ultimate party.
So, grab ANY Cricut machine and get started on the decorations for your football party. After all, what is football season without a fun party or even a tailgate?
