Happy Super Bowl Sunday, everyone!  Hunter is pretty excited because the Panthers are playing in it (he’s had quite the year for his football teams, right??) and I’ve decided that I would like the Panthers to win as well… because the Falcons already beat them, ha.  Okay so in the spirit of the Super Bowl, I wanted to share an easy last minute football craft for anyone hosting a party, and realized I never shared the football jars I did last year!

Football Painted Jars

What you’ll need:

  • Jars
  • Brown & white acrylic paint
  • Paint brush

Yup, just three things you probably have around the house, and about 30 minutes and you’re good to go.  I even knocked out 2 birds with one stone, and used the leftover cans and jars from the sweet corn salsa I made for the same party.

Wash out and dry your cans, then paint the outside in brown paint. I found that 2 coats were just the right amount needed to cover any blatant brush strokes.  Once the brown paint is dry, paint on the laces with white paint.  Told you it was easy..

I originally made these for our house warming party last year, and they have basically come out any other time people have come over, and football was on (aka from September to January).  They hold utensils, and straws and add just a little bit of fun to the food table.
