  • Silver spray paint
  • Something to paint on (I used a plastic planter turned upside down in the middle of my backyard)

If you don’t have anything to spray paint your football trophy items on, I’m sure there are some things at the dollar store you could pick up to use like a planter or plastic bucket.

Step 3: Glue The Football Trophy Together

After it’s completely dry (approx. 30 more minutes) use your hot glue gun to build a big blob of glue on the bottom of the vase.

Stick the football into the glue and be sure to position it at an angle.

**CAUTION** Do not squeeze the football.

It will still be possible to squeeze, but that could “crack” the surface of the paint, and then you’ll have to paint again with another coat.

Step 4: Prop & Dry

I used a fat highlighter to hold the football on an angle so that it did not fall while the glue was drying.
