Football Field Table

Sometimes the food is more exciting than the game, so you need a great place to put it. Who wants plastic tablecloths when you can have your very own field? Cut a piece of plywood to fit your table and attach green outdoor carpet to it. Add a few lines with white artist tape, stick on vinyl numbers and you have a field in your dining room or kitchen. If you're in a hurry, you can skip the plywood, but the field will be a little bumpier.

Field Chalkboard Coffee Table

While you are watching the game, some of you might feel that you could do a better job calling the plays. Give your guests a place to show off what they have in mind by turning your coffee table into a field chalkboard! Cut a piece of plywood to fit your coffee table and paint it with chalkboard paint. Add lines and numbers and now you and your friends are ready to call your own plays.

Football Themed Bar

With all the salty snacks and hollering, you are all bound to be thirsty. Here's where you can really do something fun - make a football themed bar! Get a nice piece of finished plywood and cut out a football shape using your jigsaw. Paint it with brown and white paint to create a football for the front of the bar. Use a black marker to add some dimension. Using the remaining plywood and 2 x 4s, create a box. Attach the football to the front, add some green outdoor carpet to the top and you are ready to wow your guests.

Football Throw Game

With the plywood left over from your coffee table chalkboard, you can make a football throw game. Cut a circle in the center of the board to toss the ball through. If your handwriting isn't the best, you can use vinyl stickers for the lettering.
