Do you know a family who taught the little ones their alma mater's fight song by age two? Or picked the Thanksgiving dinner location based on football team alliances? Well, whether they (or you) cheer for NFL or NCAA we have some crafty ideas that will suit all fans. 

Above: Spice up Sunday night football wing eating extravaganzas with this football field table runner. You will need a roll of green wrapping paper or art paper, scissors, a pencil, white drafting tape and white felt numbers. For the whole how to visit

football cookies

These cookies aren't for your boss' fancy shin dig, but for your neighbors who fly the Giants flag outside their window. Bring out the cocoa powder, vanilla frosting, flour, and butter. For the full recipe visit familycorner.

football bottle caps
Beer Me

Team those cookies with your favorite holiday six-pack (so many options: Hibernation Ale by the Great Divide, Celebration by Sierra Nevada, or Sleigh'r by Ninkasi) and then personalize them with these great football print outs by jonesbottlecapmania. All you have to do is paste the printouts to the bottle caps.

First Down

These 1950s vintage cereal box toys from Bohemian Findings make good gifts for your football collector friend. It would also be simple to turn them into earrings. Heat a needle and poke a hole at the top of the player's head. Attach earring hooks for a gift your friend won't find anywhere else. 

football leg warmers

Football fan or not, we can all agree that these leg warmers from Sylviassports are adorable. 

football ornament
Home Game

Personalized ornaments are a gift your family member or friend can keep forever. Personalize the orb even further by replacing the football with their team's logo. You'll need glass paint so it won't flake and a bit of bling to make it really pop on their tree. 
football coasters
22... 24... Hike!

Use these coasters for Sunday Night football, the super bowl, or give them as a gift. All you'll need is scissors and brown and white felt. For a sturdier coaster paste the felt footballs to cut out cork board. 

football krispies

These rice krispies pops are a good pre-game craft to do with the kids. First, decide whether you want to make the treats from scratch or just use store bought treats. Either way, add the popsicle stick and decorate with icing. Also an adorable gift to bring to a football party. 
Cozy Koozie
