Easy Football Tablescape

Hello My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days back to share an easy football tablescape with you! A couple of weekends ago, our big state rival football game was played. It is a game we never miss. The Iowa State Cyclones were taking on the Iowa Hawkeyes. We live closer to “Hawkeye country”, but we are HUGE Cyclone fans so this is a big game for us.

This year, I decided to put together an easy football tablescape for the game. I only used things that I already had on hand so it didn’t cost any money. This way, I have to be more creative with what I have.

I used a green cloth across the table and used white chalk to write on it.

I wrote the team names in the “end zones” on the cloth.



Cyclone colors are red and gold so I tried to use that color scheme with the rest of the “props”. I made a menu from a wood easel that I spray painted red and a small chalkboard.

I made a red tissue flower that I thought looked like a cheerleaders pom-pom. I put some yellow pom-poms inside just to add more color.



I used small milk bottles and some wine corks to make the anchors for the garland.

I made the garland with wood skewers, red twine and washi-tape. I tied the twine to the skewers and then made “flags” by folding the washi-tape in half over the twine. I cut the ends of the washi-tape to look more like flags.

This tablescape came together in under 30 minutes and it really brought the Cyclone feel to our football gathering.


I love decorating for parties. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time to add a little “flair” to any get-together you are hosting.
