Making your own party decor can be an inexpensive way to make your party memorable.

And this Field Goal is definitely hard to forget, right?

Plus, it makes a wonderful statement as part of your decorations for a Super Bowl or Football party.

There was a crazy good sale on Pepsi and since I have a family of six, I bought a LOT of soda.

And we are a football family. Between my husband and our 3 boys, you kinda gotta be, right?!

Annabelle and I enjoy cheering for the teams and we are always happy with the food associated with this sport.

I decided not to let the Pepsi cans go to waste and instead make a fun decoration for our Super Bowl Party.

Here’s how I made it:

  • Eight (8) Empty Soda Cans
  • One (1) Full Soda Can (for the base)
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
  • Yellow Spray Paint
  • Black Spray Paint
  • Cardstock/Ribbon for extra Embellishments.

You could also secure this goal to a dollar store tin cookie sheet with hot glue that way it would be sturdy. Then add green basket filler to look like grass to line the sheet.

Another idea is to grab a cheap door mat, the ones that look like grass. Then hot glue the goal to the mat. You could even add white tape to the mat for the end zone.

Step 1: Glue & Assemble

First, use the hot glue gun to glue the cans together.

Thankfully the aluminum is VERY forgiving… in case it seems askew, just pull apart and glue again. Easy Peasy!

You want to glue a set of 3 cans and 2 sets of 2 cans.

Then glue 1 can to the middle of the 3 cans to become part of the base.

When you are done, you will have a raw Field Goal and you are ready to paint!

Step 2: Paint

I painted the single full can first.

It is painted black since it will is at the bottom of the base.

Next, I painted the rest of the cans yellow.

It took several coats to cover the blue cans with yellow paint. But it worked!

Step 3: Complete Assembly & Embellish

Glue the top of the black base can to the base of the Field Goal.

Then tape embellishments to the top as a finishing touch!

All done!

I was so amazed at how easy this was to make and my kids were excited for how nice it turned out!
