In case you haven't yet realized, I love football and all the fun options you have when it comes to getting tailgate ready. I have attended football games since I can remember and half the fun was always the pre/post-game tailgate parties.  

When it comes to throwing a tailgate or football party the first step is always making sure that you have taken care of the tailgate essentials. Once that is done it is always a great ideas to add a little creative touch to your tailgate/football party. For this football party I have found some amazing DIY crafts that will make your party the VIP of this football party game.

One simple DIY are these silverware holders. I found this great idea from Rust & Sunshine blog. To make these all you need to do is find two cans (these are tomato cans), wash them out, and then paint the label to look like a football. Once dry you can display your silverware or anything else at your football party.
Another great DIY craft are these customized wine glasses. I ordered vinyl decals and dots from Mary, etsy shop owner of We Speak Vinyl (who is amazing!!), and then applied them to these gold acrylic wine glasses. I have a few more easy DIY creations that I am currently working, which will require another purchase from We Speak Vinyl, as I am now addicted to how easy it is to customize any item with vinyl stickers. We all loved using these at the JMU tailgate a few weeks ago and will be reappearing at the rest of the games this season.
Now these DIY projects might take a little more time and creativity (unless you want to find someone to make them for you). One DIY project, for those that can sew, are these customized koozies. One of my mom's friends made a set of these koozies as they all graduated in 1980. If sewing isn't for you you can always try your hand at painting your very own cornhole set. I painted this JMU cornhole set for my family. And you can't forget the cornhole bags in your team colors. One of my friends actually started an amazing business, Sam's Cornhole Bags, where you can order a set of bags in whatever colors you choose. 
There are so many different ways that you can add some personalized creativity to your football or tailgate party.
