Football Field Buffet Table Topper

Make your buffet table look festive at your football party by turning it into a field!

Difficulty Rating (on a scale of 1 - 3 hammers):

Difficulty Rating Two Hammers

Time: about 1 ½ hours once you have the materials and tools

Supplies:

  1. Cut the Eucaboard to a size about ½" inch larger on all sides than your table.
  2. Lay out the green carpet on the floor, green side down.
  3. Lay the Eucaboard on top of the green carpet and trim with scissors all around, leaving 3-4" extra. Save remaining leftover green carpet for other projects.
  4. Tightly fold the carpet over the back of the board and attach with duct tape. Trim the corners slightly to avoid bulk.
  5. Once all sides are taped, attach one more layer of tape, taping the first tape layer to the board with more tape.
  6. Flip the board over and using artist tape (available at craft stores) and a yard stick, attach the tape in a field pattern. This is the most difficult part of this project. It's helpful to have two people working on this part.
  7. Protect your table from scuffs with pad and/or old tablecloth. Place finished board on your table and lay out your buffet!
